    Journal PapersSustainability , Volume 13 , Issue 5, 2021 January , {Pages 2672 }

    Abstract

    Fish consumption is on the increase due to the increase in growth of the global population. Therefore, taking advantage of new methods such as marine aquaculture can be a reliable source for the production of fish in the world. It is necessary to allocate suitable sites from environmental, economic, and social points of view in the decision-making process. In this study, in order to specify suitable areas for marine aquaculture by the Ordered Weighted Averaging (OWA) methodology in the Caspian Sea (Iran), efforts were made to incorporate the concept of risk into the GIS-based analysis. By using the OWA-based method, a model was provided which can generate marine aquaculture maps with various pessimistic or optimistic strategies. Eighteen mo

    Abstract

    The presented research investigated and predicted landscape change processes (LCPs) in the Talar watershed, northern Iran. The Land Change Modeler was used for change analysis, transition potential modeling, and prediction of land use/land cover (LULC) map. The evaluation of projected LULC map was performed by comparing the real and predicted LULC maps for the reference year, 2014. Landscape metrics and change processes were investigated for the period 1989–2014 and for exploring the situation in 2030. Results illustrated that the increase in agricultural land and residential areas took place at the expense of forest and rangeland. The distance from forests was the most sensitive parameter for modeling the transition potentials. The model

    Abstract

    Currently, satellite ocean color imageries play an important role in monitoring of water properties in various oceanic, coastal, and inland ecosystems. Although there is a long-time and global archive of such valuable data, no study has comprehensively used these data to assess the changes in the Caspian Sea. Hence, this study assessed the variability of bio-optical properties of the upper-water column in the Southern Caspian Sea (SCS) using the archive of the Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The images acquired from SeaWiFS (January 1998 to December 2002) and MODIS Aqua (January 2003 to December 2015) satellites were used to investigate the spatial–temporal var

    Abstract

    Introduction Since geographic issues and problems have large and variable dimensions over time series, it leads to the study of a geographic field while considering a variable during the time series. In recent decades, mankind has caused changes in land and sea, which have led to increased pollution and a subsequent increase in phytoplankton numbers. For this purpose, to understand and monitor these effects, there is a need for a link between scientific work in this field and its management. To manage these regions, strict approaches, stringent measures, infrastructure compliance, and finally modelling and prediction are required. The chlorophyll-a parameter is one of the most common elements which its value and changes over time and differ

    Abstract

    Ecosystem services refer to the benefits and advantages (directly and indirectly) provided by the ecosystem to people. The concept of ecosystem services has been recognized as a tool for comprehensive decision-making in natural resource management, land use policy design and land use planning in recent years. In this regard, the present study was planned to implement the InVEST sediment delivery ratio (SDR) model and prioritize sub-watersheds of the Talar in Mazandaran province in terms of soil loss, sediment retention and sediment yield. For this purpose, the input factors of the model including rainfall erosivity, soil erodibility, land use, digital elevation model, crop management, land management, sediment connectivity index, K paramete

    Abstract

    The current study aimed to comprehensively assess the potential watershed health (WH) using an adapted reliability, resilience and vulnerability (RelResVul) framework for the 24 sub-watersheds of Shazand, Markazi Province, Iran. Towards this goal, the appropriate criteria and acceptable corresponding thresholds were adapted to calculate the main WH indictors of reliability (Rel), resilience (Res) and vulnerability (Vul). Accordingly, the RelResVul framework was conceptualized and customized for five criteria of standardized precipitation index (SPI), normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), soil erosion, and low and high flow discharges. The effect sizes of used criteria and indicators on the Shazand WH status were also determined. Co

    Abstract

    Unfortunately in recent decades Central Zagros region has been changed adversely due to human activities. To analyze changes land cover maps produced using multi-temporal classification of Landsat satellite images of TM, ETM+ and OLI sensors, respectively for 1989, 2000 and 2013 years. Then derived maps used as input data in Land Change Modeler (LCM) to predict land cover changes on 2020, 2030, 2040 and 2050 based on a historical scenario. Results of classification and prediction were used to analyze landscape patterns and change processes. Five landscape pattern metrics as Normalized Entropy, Edge Density, Patch Area, Patch Compactness and Relative Richness were used to quantify landscape pattern and occurrence of ten landscape change proc

    Abstract

    In recent decades, rapid population growth and human improper activities accelerated deforestation. Reducing Emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) has been introduced as a strategy for reducing deforestation in developing countries. Thus, identifying areas with high-deforestation is important for site selection of the REDD+ projects. Transition potential modeling is applied as a tool for deforestation simulation. Drastic land use changes in the Central Hyrcanian forests caused a substantial reduction in forests cover. In this research, forest cover changes of the Central Hyrcanian forests were examined. Then, transition potential modeling using of three empirical procedures included: multi-layer perceptron

    Abstract

    Understanding the relationship between rivers water quality (RWQ) and landscape metrics (LMs) is valuable for developing sustainable watershed management practices and pollution/environmental risk mitigation. To do so, the current study aimed to explore the relationship between RWQ and LMs by assessing 74 sub-basins within 2 million ha in Northern Iran. Principal component analyses were used to identify principal water quality parameters. Considering the effect of composition and configuration of the Land Use/Land Cover (LULC) on pollution loads, statistical models revealed that by increasing the mean of the Fractal Dimension Index of agricultural lands, the nitrate loads will increase. The results of this study can be especially used in th

    Abstract

    Accelerated soil erosion is one of the most important detrimental factors affecting the quality of the watershed health. Due to different environmental pressures and drivers, the effort is needed for ecological health and resilience assessment in regards to erosion changeability. However, this important subject has not been adequately studied yet. Towards this, in the present research, an innovative approach was developed for conceptualizing the watershed health dynamics in viewpoint of soil erosion. A risk-based study was conducted to quantitatively characterize the spatiotemporal variability of erosion-based health in an industrialized watershed ie, the Shazand Watershed using the conceptual reliability, resilience and vulnerability (RelR

    Abstract

    Land use (LU) or land cover (LC) is a critical factor dictating the amount of available water in runoff and groundwater. LU/LC Land use (LU) or land cover (LC) is a critical factor which can determine amount of available water in runoff and groundwater. In this study future effect of LU/LC change on stream flow in Nekarood watershed is investigated by Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). Land use maps (1986–2016) based on Landsat TM and ETM+ satellite imagery are used. Furthermore, land use projection is performed by CA-Markov for the future period of 2016–2030. According to the results, agriculture and residential land use are increased by 40%, 28%, 38% and 31% respectively, and forest area is reduced by 12% and 6% during 1986–2001 and

    Journal PapersLand Degradation & Development , 2019 January , {Pages }

    Abstract

    A pressure–state–response framework was customized to outline the watershed health (WH) concept. To achieve this, the watershed indicators of pressure, state (S), and response (R) were conceptualized according to 17 climatic, anthropogenic, and hydrologic criteria. Four node years of 1986, 1998, 2008, and 2014 were selected to provide a running picture of the Shazand Watershed condition. The WH index was then calculated using geometric mean of pressure, S, and R indicators and assigned a range of values varied from 0 (unhealthiest) to 1 (healthiest). (a) The main pressures on the Shazand Watershed come from climatic factors in 1998 and 2008 and human factors in all study years. (b) The climatic factor and then anthropogenic factors had
