Environmental Land Use Planning and Management

Environmental Land Use Planning and Management is a unique new textbook that presents a diverse, comprehensive, and coordinated approach to issues of land use planning and management and their impacts on the environment. It builds on recent advances in environmental science, engineering, and geospatial information technologies to provide students with the scientific foundation they need to understand both natural land systems and engineering approaches that can mitigate impacts of land use practices. While offering a base of knowledge in planning theory and natural science, its primary emphasis is on describing and explaining emerging approaches, methods, and techniques for environmental lan...

Land-Use and Land-Cover Changes

Wildfires, changing glaciers, deforestation, open-pit mining, increasing demands for food and bio-fuel production and the growth of megacities change our landscape. The book comprehensively reviews the current knowledge on how natural and anthropogenic land-use/cover changes affect weather, air quality and climate worldwide and explains how these changes may trigger further land-use/cover changes. It discusses how anthropogenic land-use/cover changes have affected local and regional climate and air quality since the settlement of America and the industrialisation. It addresses the topic how long-range transport of pollutants and dust of devasted areas as well as teleconnections may cause changes far away from the areas where the land-use/cover changes occurred, for which land-use/cover change may become an international issue similar to CO2. It also discusses relations to global change and future societal and scientific challenges related to land-use/cover changes.

Land Use, Land Cover and Soil Sciences - Volume II

This Encyclopedia of Land Use, Land Cover and Soil Sciences is a component of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Land is one of our most precious assets. It represents space, provides food and shelter, stores and filters water, and it is a base for urban and industrial development, road construction, leisure and many other social activities. Land is, however not unlimited in extent, and even when it is physically available its use is not necessarily free, either because of natural limitations (too cold, too steep, too wet or too dry, etc.) or because of constraints of access or land tenure. This 7-volume set contains several chapters, each of size 5000-30000 words, with perspectives, applications and extensive illustrations. It carries state-of-the-art knowledge in the fields of Land Use, Land Cover and Soil Sciences and is aimed, by virtue of the several applications, at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Planning Paradise

ÒSprawlÓ is one of the ugliest words in the American political lexicon. Virtually no one wants AmericaÕs rural landscapes, farmland, and natural areas to be lost to bland, placeless malls, freeways, and subdivisions. Yet few of AmericaÕs fast-growing rural areas have effective rules to limit or contain sprawl. Oregon is one of the nationÕs most celebrated exceptions. In the early 1970s Oregon established the nationÕs first and only comprehensive statewide system of land-use planning and largely succeeded in confining residential and commercial growth to urban areas while preserving the stateÕs rural farmland, forests, and natural areas. Despite repeated political attacks, the stateÕs...

Land Use

"Land use remains a central political and practical issue in contemporary society. In resolving conflicts as to the actual or intended use of particular parcels of land, however, the practitioner faces problems of considerable diversity: while methods of land use data capture are becoming increasingly sophisticated and technical, for instance, the debate between positivists and marxists as to the interpretation of land use patterns is forcing many to reconsider their starting points. This books by David Rhind and Ray Hudson draws together a wide range of studies dealing with various aspects of land use in a text specifically designed to guide students through the complexities of the subject. In five sections, it examines the history of the subject, its techniques, its applications today, models that it applies and the framework within which it has been and continues to be carried out."--Back cover.
