Mapping of biotopes in urban areas: A case study of the city of Bartın and its environs, Turkey

Biotope mapping is one of the planning elements playing an important role in detection of ecologically valuable areas. It is obligatory to consider urban biotopes in point of protection and management of natural and cultural structure especially in the development processes of urban areas. However, urban planning in Turkey where 75% of the population lives in urban areas is done without considering existing biotopes....

The analysis of long wave diffractions due to offshore breakwater and seawall

The purpose of this study was to investigate the long wave-structure interaction that differs with varying incident wave period, length of offshore breakwater, and distance between offshore breakwater and seawall. The theoretical method was based upon the linear diffraction theory obtained by a pair of boundary integral approach. The water depth in the fluid region was assumed to be constant. To investigate the long...

Dynamic forecasting of traffic volume based on quantificational dynamics: A nearness perspective

Accurate and timely forecasting of traffic volume has long been regarded as a key point in transportation, planning and management. In order to realize effective and efficient traffic forecasting, this paper investigates quantificational method of dynamic factors from the perspective of nearness. The dynamic modeling method based on quantificational dynamics (that is, quantificational disposal of dynamic factors...

Socio-economic determinants of the adoption of budded planting materials in rubber smallholdings of the South West region, Cameroon

The rubber tree, Hevea brasiliensis (Willd. ex Adr. Juss.) Muell. Arg. constitutes one of the main cash crops in Cameroon. The use of budded planting materials is being generalized in rubber smallholdings though the extent of its adoption remains quite variable. In this paper, a logit model was used to study the factors which determine the decision-making behaviour of farmers in the adoption of budded planting...
