- Rice and Bricks: Environmental Issues and Mapping of the Unusual Crop Rotation Pattern in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. Haack, Barry; Khatiwada, Gyanendra // Environmental Management;Jun2007, Vol. 39 Issue 6, p774
The Kathmandu Valley in Nepal has experienced a very rapid increase in population resulting in considerable land use/land cover change and also a series of environmental problems. One of the results of the population increase is an expansion of brick manufacturing within the Valley because most...
- Widespread land use for biofuels could have negative impacts. Arias, Donya C. // Nation's Health;Apr2008, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p12
This article reports on a study on the environmental impact of the widespread land use for producing ethanol and other biofuels. Researchers used a worldwide agricultural model to estimate emissions from land use changes. They found that turning forests and grasslands into fields for producing...
- A Simple Scheme for Modeling Irrigation Water Requirements at the Regional Scale Applied to an Alpine River Catchment. Smith, Pascalle C.; Calanca, Pierluigi; Fuhrer, Jürg // Water (20734441);Dec2012, Vol. 4 Issue 4, p869
This paper presents a simple approach for estimating the spatial and temporal variability of seasonal net irrigation water requirement (IWR) at the catchment scale, based on gridded land use, soil and daily weather data at 500 Ã— 500 m resolution. In this approach, IWR is expressed as a...
- A bid-rent land-use adaptation model for mitigating road network vulnerability and traffic emissions. Zhao, L.; Peng, Z.-R.; Yang, F.; Shen, S. // International Journal of Environmental Science & Technology (IJE;Nov2014, Vol. 11 Issue 8, p2359
Disruptions of vulnerable links in transportation networks have been widely recognized as a serious safety issue, generating both traffic congestion and significant traffic emissions. This paper aims to consolidate a proposed land-use adaptation (LUA) strategy into transportation vulnerability...
- Analysis of interaction among land use, transportation network and air pollution using stochastic nonlinear programming. Shahraki, N.; Turkay, M. // International Journal of Environmental Science & Technology (IJE;Nov2014, Vol. 11 Issue 8, p2201
This paper presents two novel models for land use and transportation to address the development of different functional zones in urban areas by considering the design of an efficient transportation network and reducing air pollution. Objective functions of the first model are maximizing utility...
