    Exploring the role of transportation demand management policies' interactions

    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 18, Issue 5 , 2011 , Pages 1037-1044 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Habibian, M ; Kermanshah, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The integration of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) policies is a challenging issue in urban policy studies. Interactions between policies that are not addressed broadly in the integration context play a main role in the outcome of TDM policy packages. However, different individual daily trip purposes, city development, variations in land use and different levels of decision making about transportation often lead to the implementation of more than one TDM policy at a time. This study examined the role of TDM policy interactions on the macro and micro levels. On the macro level, this study showed that the introduction of two-way interactions in the model could improve the goodness of... 

    Sediment yield in the Daryacheh-Namak drainage basin, Iran, and its relation to land-use changes

    , Article IAHS-AISH Publication, 11 July 2007 through 13 July 2007, Perugia ; Issue 314 , 2007 , Pages 306-311 ; 01447815 (ISSN) ; 9781901502145 (ISBN) Feiznia, S ; Mohammadi, A ; Zakikhani, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Monthly and annual variations in sediment yield during a 24-year period were analysed for 10 sub-catchments in the Daryacheh-Namak drainage basin, Iran. Highest specific suspended sediment yields were recorded at Razin and the lowest at Solan, reflecting large land-use changes in the former, and the presence of relatively resistant formations in thelatter sub-catchment. Highest sediment yields were observed in the months of April, March, May and November, and the lowest in September and August. At almost all stations, the highest sediment yield occurs in the spring, reflecting higher rainfall in that season. Copyright © 2007 IAHS Press

    Observatory-scale data collection efforts allow unprecedented opportunities for integrative, multidisciplinary investigations in large, complex watersheds, which can affect management decisions and policy. Through the National Science Foundation-funded REACH (REsilience under Accelerated CHange) project, in collaboration with the Intensively Managed Landscapes-Critical Zone Observatory, we have collected a series of multidisciplinary data sets throughout the Minnesota River Basin in south-central Minnesota, USA, a 43,400-km2 tributary to the Upper Mississippi River. Postglacial incision within the Minnesota River valley created an erosional landscape highly responsive to hydrologic change,...
