New issue of the Journal of Alpine Research series

Nov 17, 2005 / alpMedia
The latest issue of the Revue de Géographie Alpine series comprises five specialist articles on a variety of topics. One article examines the causes of flooding and the measures that are necessary to prevent it based on the example of the Isère/F region while another article focuses on sustainable water management in general.
The interplay between natural, the local population and tourism is highlighted using the example of Verbier/CH. The two other contributions look at the ecological repercussions of surrendering farming land and how to cope with avalanches. All the texts are published in both French and English.
