Urban Sprawl Modelling: Combining Models to Make Decision
Urban sprawl is frequently associated with the idea of an unsuitable development, leading to increasing economic, social and environmental problems. Moreover, its control is difficult because multiple patterns (concerning numerous traditional urban planning fields) overlap. In order to understand the sprawl process and to manage its consequences, it must be simplified. The construction of a decision making tool appears then interesting. The GIS-based tool presented here is being developed incoll

8.1 Introduction

The average human cell has around two metres of DNA within its nucleus. In the interphase nucleus, in which transcription and replication are going on, this DNA is packaged into nucleosomes that are variably compacted, through association with H1, into larger 30nm fibres. In fact, the average nucleus most likely contains DNA with a continuum of chromatin configurations, ranging from highly open 10 nm fibres, through to 30 nm fibres and fibres that are even more tightly packed together, call

  1. BSE is a TSE disease of cattle that was formally recognised in 1986. It developed to epidemic proportions in the UK, reaching a peak in 1992. Although BSE is now fading away in the UK, cases have eventually turned up in many other countries.

  2. Mainly through epidemiological studies, veterinary scientists quickly established (at least to their satisfaction) that BSE was caused by the inclusion in cattle feed of ruminant-derived MBM contaminated w

12.091 Basics of Impact Cratering & Geological, Geophysical, Geochemical, Environmental Studies of S
There are now about 170 identified impact craters on the Earth, and this number is growing, ever since the well known discovery of Meteor Crater in 1920s. Currently, multi-interdisciplinary research studies of impact structures are getting conducted in fields like mineralogy, petrology, environmental geology, and marine biology. The course objectives are to introduce basic principles of impact cratering, understand the application of analytical tools, and become familiar with geological, geochem

Methodological Approach for the Integration of Material Information and Performance in the Design Co
As computational design processes have moved from representation to simulation, the focus has shifted towards advanced integration of performance as a form defining measure. Performance, though, is often assessed purely on the level of geometry and stratified between hierarchically independent layers. When looking at tension-active membrane systems, performance is integrated across multiple levels and with only the membrane material itself, defining the structural, spatial and atmospheric qualit

2.3.1 Public participation and perspectives on sustainability

When it comes to issues around the environment, ‘experts’ – whether ecologists, economists or other types of social scientist – are clearly not infallible. Environmental crises have led to a questioning of traditional expert support as a guarantor of environmental planning. This has had two consequences. Firstly, there have been some interesting and useful explorations amongst environmentalists in seeking guarantors through the domain of spiritualism. In particular, traditional worldv

6.2 (a) 'Cleaning-up' fossil and nuclear technologies

This means mitigating some of the adverse 'environmental' consequences of fossil and nuclear fuel use through the introduction of new, 'clean' technologies that should substantially reduce pollution emissions and health hazards. These include 'supply-side' measures to improve the efficiency with which fossil fuels are converted into electricity in power stations; cleaner and more efficient combustion methods; the increasing use of 'waste' heat in combined heat-and-power schemes; and 'end of p
