Examines landscape sensitivity in terms of the response of landforms and landscapes to changes in geomorphic processes, to shifts in controlling climatic parameters, and to human disturbance.
Part 1 Geomorphic processes, landscape sensitivity and climatic change: the sensitivity of river channels in the landscape system, K. Gregory and P. Downs; use of Caesium-137 measurements to investigate relationships between erosion rates and topography, T.A. Quine and D.E. Walling; landscape sensitivity and change on Dartmoor, A.J.W. Gerrard; landscape sensitivity and biogeomorphic response to past and future climatic shifts in inter-tropical Africa, N. Roberts and P. Barker; geomorphological processes, environmental change and landscape sensitivity in the Kalahari region of Southern Africa, P.A. Shaw and D.S.G. Thomas; thresholds in a sensitive landscape - the Loess region of central China, E. Derbyshire, et al; endogenic and exogenic controls on fault-scarp and range-front morphology, I.S. Stewart; shallow failure mechanisms during the Holocene - utilization of a coupled slope hydrology-slope stability model, S.M. Brooks, et al; numerical experiments on the orthogonal profile with particular reference to changing environmental parameters, J. Hardisty. Part 2 Land use and landscape sensitivity: sensitivity of the British landscape to erosion, R. Evans; the sensitivity of Downland arable land to erosion by water, J. Boardman; catchment sensitivity to land use control, T.P. Burt, et al; catchment controls on the recent sediment history of Slapton Ley, Southwest England, A.L. Heathwaite; the sensitivity of rivers to nitrate leaching - the sensitivity of near-stream land as a nutrient retention zone, N.E. Haycock and T.P. Burt; environmental response and sensitivity to permanent cattle ranching, semi-arid western central Botswana, J.S. Perkins and D.S.G. Thomas; successional pattern and landscape sensitivity in the Mediterranean and Near East, M.A. Blumler. Part 3 Sensitivity and built environments: the environmental sensitivity of blistering of limestone walls in Oxford, England - a preliminary study, H.A. Viles; sensitivity of South Australian environments to marina construction, N. Harvey.
