Notes on misconceptions in the application of geographical names of the tepuis on the borderlands of Guyana and Venezuela and a clarification of the location of Waukauyengtipu and Cerro Venamo

Pubblicato online: 02 Feb 2022
Pagine: 75 - 79

Astratto

Abstract

A review of recent publications concerning the South American Pantepui biogeographic region revealed recurring mistakes in the naming of several table mountains (known locally as ‘tepui’, ‘tipu’ or ‘tepuy’) located around the Guyana-Venezuela border, close to the transection of the so-called Schomburgk Line and the course of Rio Venamo. The mistakes are believed to have arisen and have been repeated as a result of a noticeable scarcity of detailed maps of the region, its short history of exploration and ongoing inaccessibility.

An extensive analysis of modern satellite data and records of past research expeditions, supplemented by first-hand observations and assessment made during an expedition to Waukauyengtipu in the Cuyuni-Mazaruni Region in Guyana in January 2019, are used to clarify the nomenclatural confusion regarding the tepuis of the area. We determine that the tepuis known as Cerro Venamo and Waukauyengtipu should be treated as separate and distinct geographic formations.

Recreational Zoning of the Coastal Territories Using the Example of the Odessa Region

Pubblicato online: 29 Apr 2022
Pagine: 80 - 93

Astratto

Abstract

This article analyzes the recreational potential of the Odessa region with the implementation of recreational zoning. The evaluation of the recreational potential proposed is based on selected indicators, reflecting the presence of certain recreational resources in the Odessa region, which is located on the Ukrainian Black Sea coast. The zoning of the geosystem of the territories is carried out by combining several tools and methods according to the indicators of the recreational potential identified in the corresponding zones. Based on the assessment results completed in 2019, the territorial units were grouped into the recreational areas proposed according to their suitability for the main recreation functions. The results obtained identify five recreational zones in the Odessa region with the most promising strategy for recreational use. This will become the basis for developing priority strategies for investing into the recreational sphere and determining the types and objects of investment.

Municipal investment expenditures by pork-barrel mayors: evidence from a transition economy

Pubblicato online: 29 Apr 2022
Pagine: 94 - 100

Astratto

Abstract

The focus of this study is electoral accounting practices employed by mayors in municipalities in a selected, exemplary region in a post-socialist country – the Lodz region in Central Poland. The goal is to identify characteristics of pork-barrel mayors responsible for municipal investment expenditures: their terms of office, partisan affiliation, and gender. The generalised method of moments was applied to estimate the impact that the electoral accounting practices of mayors had on municipal investment expenditures. All 177 municipalities in the Lodz region were investigated, from 2003 until 2019. Contrary to expectations, it was found that electoral accounting was practised by next-term and independent mayors rather than first-term or party-affiliated ones.

Rural Tourism Opportunity Spectrum: Linking People and Landscape for Spatial Planning

Pubblicato online: 29 Apr 2022
Pagine: 101 - 110

Astratto

Abstract

The aim of the study was to develop a low-cost method for tourism opportunity spectrum evaluation in rural landscapes. The method uses the geographic information system (GIS) for spatial analysis of the problem. Open source materials are used in the evaluation. Three principal indices derived from spatial data are evaluated: attraction index, view index, and access index. These form the basis for tourism suitability and opportunity spectrum evaluation. The analysis is realized for two types of tourists: those using cars, and hikers. The method permits the current state of tourism to be identified, and points out possible ways for further development as well as identifying valuable but overexploited zones which should be conserved. The obtained results can improve the sustainable management of landscapes and enhance the profits of rural areas.

Dynamics of hydrological droughts propagation in mountainous catchments

Pubblicato online: 29 Apr 2022
Pagine: 111 - 124

Astratto

Abstract

In the study, hydrological drought was identified assuming that the occurrence of river low-flow is a symptom of drought, and is also a good estimator of its progress. The research was conducted in the upper Dunajec river catchment, for which a series of daily discharges from 20 gauging stations during the period 1989–2018 were available. The low-flow periods were identified on the basis of the Threshold Level Method, which corresponds to the seventieth percentile of the flow duration curve. On the basis of a developed algorithm, 41 drought events were identified. Analysis included spatial parameters referring to range, severity, concentration, continuation, and the development pace of hydrological drought. Finally, on the basis of cluster analysis, five dynamic types of hydrological drought were identified.
