Abstract We provide a bare–bones framework that uncovers the circumstances which lead either to the emergence of equally-spaced and equally-sized central places or to a hierarchy of central places. We show how these patterns reflect the preferences of agents and the efficiency of transportation and communication technologies. With one population of homogeneous individuals, the economy ...

Abstract Liquefaction is one of the most spectacular phenomena of soil behaviour during which granular soil changes its properties from solid to liquid-like type. Due to its disastrous character, it has been a subject of investigations carried out by various researchers from many countries over many years. Although the basic factors governing the liquefaction phenomenon ...

Abstract: How much and how fast do biogeochemical signature respond to hydrological variations (and climate changes in general)? This question has lingered in catchment sciences for decades, with literature now boasting decades of concentration (C) and discharge (Q) data that record Earth system response to changing environmental conditions. Diverse explanations abound in literature explaining contrasting ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Catchments as hydro-biogeochemical reactors under changing climate conditions""

Abstract: Surface-associated assemblages of oxygenic microbial phototrophs (microalgae and cyanobacteria) in biofilms and photosymbioses are characterized by a high optical density and (sub-)mm-thick photic zones, wherein steep and dynamic gradients of light, temperature, pH, O2 and other chemical species modulate photosynthetic performance. While application of various microscale methods has given detailed insight to photosynthesis in ... Read more about "EESS talk on "Coral Biophotonics and Microscale Canopy Effects""
