Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 301-314


  The traditional fuzzy operators, such as t-norms, t-conorms and averaging operators have been used for soil suitability evaluation to aggregate criteria as an overall suitability index. However, such operators do not account for the degree of compensation common to human aggregation criteria, especially ...  Read More

Statistical Analysis of Hydrological Regime Changes in Rivers of Western Part of Orumieh Lake Basin

Mehdi Teimouri; Ali Fathzadeh

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 315-328


  The discharge data used for hydrological modeling should be the long-term suitable random data without trend and jump which is followed a specific statistical distribution. In this study, the above mentioned conditions were evaluated for 31 years period (1974-2004) of annual mean discharge data of 10 ...  Read More

Applicability of Various Reconstruction Methods of Hydrometric Data (Case Study: Sefidroud Basin)

Hojatollah Jalilian; Ghobad Rostamizad; Saleh Arkhi

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 329-340


  The necessity of using discharge data in hydrological designs and regional programming is an unavoidable matter. Unfortunately, malfunctioning of observation instruments, natural disasters and other problems sometimes result in incomplete or missing data. Having of data related to time series is necessary ...  Read More

Flood Forecasting Using Artificial Neural Networks and Nonlinear Multivariate Regression (Case Study: Taleghan Watershed)

Maryam Khosravi; Ali Salajegheh; Mohammad Mahdavi; Mohsen Mohseni Saravi

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 341-349


  It is necessary to use empirical models for estimating of instantaneous peak discharge because of deficit of gauging stations in the country. Hence, at present study, two models including Artificial Neural Networks and nonlinear multivariate regression were used to predict peak discharge in Taleghan ...  Read More

Study of Flight Height and Spatial Resolution of Aerial Photography in Estimating Canopy Cover Percentage of Shrub Lands

Molouk Royan; Adel Sepehri; Abdolrasoul Salman Mahini

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 351-359


  Remote sensing and aerial photographs are used to produce medium to small scale images. However, for detailed information especially to estimate rangeland vegetation canopy cover there is a need to larger scale images. It is therefore necessary to study the technical applicability of different devices ...  Read More

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 395-409


  In western and southern watersheds of Isfahan province, combinations of natural and human factors have caused numerous landslides related damages. One of the main strategies for restricting the damage caused by the landslide is to avoid these regions. For this purpose, it is necessary to prepare precise ...  Read More

Investigation of Sand Drift Potential by Wind (Case Study: Kashan Plain)

Tayyebeh Mesbahzadeh; Hassan Ahmadi

Volume 65, Issue 3 , December 2012, Pages 411-422


  Sand dunes mobility is one of the serious problems in arid regions. Since wind regime is one of the important factors in sand dunes formation, its frequency, direction and magnitude can be effective. Amount of wind energy and its directional variability (wind regime) have significant control on the morphology ...  Read More
