Anthropogenic geomorphology : a guide to man-made landforms by József Szabó( )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, human impact on the environment, and especially on the Earth's surface, is obvious. We increasingly face the consequences of our interventions, and we must pay more attention to the wider impacts of our activities, which include everything from the extraction of fossil fuels to the influence of tourism. Anthropogenic geomorphology, as the study of the way man affects his physical environment, has therefore developed rapidly as a discipline in recent decades. This volume provides guidance to students discussing the basic topics of anthropogenic geomorphology. The chapters cover both its system, and its connections with other sciences, as well as the way the subject can contribute to coping with practical problems. The book represents all fields of geomorphology, giving an introduction to the diversity of the discipline through examples taken from a range of contexts and periods, and focusing on examples from Europe. It is no accident that anthropogenic geomorphology has been gaining ground within geomorphology itself. Its results advance not only the theoretical development of the science but can be applied directly to social and economic issues. Worldwide, anthropogenic geomorphology is an integral and expanding part of the Earth sciences curricula in higher education, making this volume timely and relevant. Key themes: Anthropogenic Geomorphology - Dynamic equilibrium - Environmentalism - Geomorphic processes - Human impact - Man-made landforms József Szabó is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Physical Geography and Geoinformatics, University of Debrecen. He is President of the Hungarian Geographical Society, a Corresponding Member of the CERG (Strasbourg) and a Member of the International Landslide Research Group (Palo Alto, California). His research fields are mass movements and other geomorphological processes, land evaluation, anthropogenic geomorphology, geomorphological hazards, and history of physical geography. Lóránt Dávid is a college professor and Head of the Department of Tourism and Regional Development at Károly Róbert College, Gyöngyös. He has longstanding teaching and research experience in the fields of anthropogenic geomorphology, environmental protection, tourism, and regional development, and has worked as an expert in a number of government programs. Dénes Lóczy is an associate professor, Director of the Institute of Environmental Sciences at the University of Pécs. From 2001 to 2005 he was Secretary of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG). He has established and chairs a Working Group on Human Impact on the Landscape (HILS). His research interests are land evaluation, land use studies, floodplain geomorphology, and landscape rehabilitation

Geomorphological impacts of extreme weather : case studies from central and eastern Europe by Dénes Lóczy( )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents new research on the geomorphological impacts of extreme precipitation events. It focuses on the extreme summer floods, which affected Central and Eastern Europe in 2010. Case studies on their consequences, including inundations, urban flooding, soil erosion, river bank retreat, alluvial fan accumulation, evolution of karst depressions, debris flows, landslides and soil saturation are presented for Poland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Macedonia. This key applied geomorphology book is crucial for anyone interested in these processes and their consequences and also for decision makers who face these catastrophes
Landscapes and landforms of hungary by Dénes Lóczy( )

19 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first comprehensive description of the most spectacular landforms of Hungary. It is a richly illustrated book which presents a collection of significant sites, capturing the geodiversity of Hungarian landscapes. The Landscapes and Landforms of Hungary discusses the effects of geomorphological features to the landscape, such as volcanism, weathering, fluvial or aeolian erosion, karst formation, gravitational movements, and others. The importance of the conservation of geomorphological heritage is underlined, as well as the importance of geomorphological heritage and conservation. This book can be used for undergraduate and graduate courses in geomorphology, physical geography, hydrogeography, and nature conservation. It will be of benefit to environmental scientists, geomorphologists, conservationists, among others"--Back cover

The Drava River : environmental problems and solutions by Dénes Lóczy( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph summarizes the environmental issues concerning the channel and the floodplain of the Drava River. It describes the diverse forms of human impact (river regulation, damming and reservoirs, dredging etc.) and the environmental changes of hydrological regime, sediment transport, biodiversity etc. involved. The transboundary nature of the river is emphasized and the resulting problems are outlined. Special attention is devoted to the evolution and present condition of the floodplain (drainage pattern, oxbow lakes and their vegetation). The possible solutions to environmental problems are illustrated by a review of ongoing and planned rehabilitation measures. The book is amply illustrated with maps, cross/sections, diagrams and photographs. The international team of authors (representing all countries crossed by the Drava River: Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary) approach the topic from different aspects. Thus, the reader is provided with a comprehensive picture of this, up until now, little studied European river
