This quantity explores the technical and geographic scope of this significant method, focusing relatively at the intertwined affects of climatic edition and land-use practices in sculpting landscapes. individuals supply a broad-perspective evaluation of the cutting-edge of repeat images, with twenty-three chapters written by way of researchers world wide who've made use of repeat images of their paintings. themes addressed include
the heritage of repeat photography
ideas for growing and reading repeat photographs
functions within the geosciences
purposes in inhabitants ecology
functions in atmosphere change
Repeat images demonstrates the wide variety of capability purposes, examines new suggestions for buying facts from repeat images, and obviously exhibits that repeat images is still a worthwhile and effective technique of tracking switch in either constructed and constructing areas. Over 100 units of images, together with thirty-two pages of colour photographs, function examples.
contemporary issues approximately weather switch and its results on typical landscapes, mixed with ongoing issues approximately land-use practices, make this cutting-edge assessment a well timed contribution to the literature.
