Characterization and Behavior of Interfaces: Proceedings of Research Symposium on Characterization and Behavior of Interfaces, 21 September 2008, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Interfaces exist in each geotechnical process in lots of kinds and at a number of scales. even if traditionally, they can be thought of to be the vulnerable hyperlink in a process, relatively because the results of a few unforeseen catastrophic mess ups, new perception won over the last 20 years through researchers around the globe has proven that it really is attainable to choose mixtures of fabrics and layout an engineered interface in order that it truly is a minimum of as robust because the surrounding fabrics.

Their diversity accounts for the great difficulty encountered by geographers, doctors, biologists, and other specialists in attempting to emphasize some aspect of this large and important area of research. On the other hand, the practice of some epidemiologists to study only the distribution of human diseases without in - depth investigation of the causes and regularities of their incidence in a certain geological environment transforms medical geography into a purely descriptive science capable of recording the more important diseases (especiadly noninfectious ones), but not of analyzing, extirpating, and preventing them.

Environmental subdivisions, as established by landscape science and physico - geographical regionalization. ). Data on differentiation of the Earth's surface into geosystems, their structure and types, and involvement of zonal and azonal factors in their fonnation are essential for medico - geographical investigations, including research of significance for anthropo - ecological evaluation of quality of the human environment. 2.
