The LabEx ITEM is a research network in the field of humanities and social sciences. The research laboratories that make up this network come from institutions located in the Isere and the Savoie french departments. Labex ITEM's vocation is to provide the mountain territories with the analytical capacity and expertise that are essential to cope with the various forms of change they face: economical, demographical, cultural, climatic and so on.

The objective of this platform is to to shed light on the LabEx ITEM's own activities and networks. Its goal is also to communicate about its partners' various information when related to the mountain territories. This is an open communication and collaborative tool for everyone.

This platform is currently in beta test. Don't hesitate to send us your comments.

X European Mountain Convention “Mountains’ vulnerability to climate change: how can people and territories adapt and mitigate its effects?”

Euromontana, the European Association of Mountain areas with the Mountain Research Centre (CIMO) of the Polytechnic institute of Bragança (IPB) and the Association for the Development of Viticulture in the Douro Region (ADVID) in Portugal are organisi...

Local vs. cross station simulation of suspended sediment load in successive hydrometric stations: heuristic modeling approach

Abstract The present paper aims at modeling suspended sediment load (SSL) using heuristic data driven methodologies, e.g. Gene Expression Programming (GEP) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) in three successive hydrometric stations o...

137 Cs tracing dynamics of soil erosion, organic carbon, and total nitrogen in terraced fields and forestland in the Middle Mountains of Nepal

Abstract The Middle Mountains is one of the regions of Nepal most vulnerable to water erosion, where fragile geology, steep topography, anomalous climatic conditions, and intensive human activity have resulted in serious soil erosion...

The formation and evolution of the Qiaojia pull-apart basin, North Xiaojiang Fault Zone, Southwest China

Abstract Sedimentary sequences with drastic thickening over short distances have been observed in Qiaojia County, Yunnan Province, Southwest China. These are related to a pull-apart basin controlled by the Xiaojiang strike-slip fau...

Altitudinal trends in δ 13 C value, stomatal density and nitrogen content of Pinus tabuliformis needles on the southern slope of the middle Qinling Mountains, China

Abstract In this study, a coniferous tree species (Pinus tabuliformis Carr.) was investigated at a moderate-altitude mountainous terrain on the southern slope of the middle Qinling Mountains (QLM) to detect the trends in carbon iso...

Swelling characteristics of soils derived from black shales heightened by cations in Northern Chongqing, China

Abstract Black shale is widely distributed in southern and western China. The swelling and breakdown characteristics of black shale are important physicomechanical properties in engineering activities. Aqueous solutions with differ...

Changes in spatial variations of sap flow in Korean pine trees due to environmental factors and their effects on estimates of stand transpiration

Abstract It is difficult to scale up measurements of the sap flux density (Js) for the characterization of tree or stand transpiration (E) due to spatial variations in JS and their temporal changes. To assess spatial variations in ...

Spatial distribution of mountainous regions and classifications of economic development in China

Abstract China is a mountainous country with a great diversity of landform and geomorphology. This diversity underlines the need for regionalization and classification. This study defines the mountain terrains and regions with thre...

Contribution of aboveground litter to soil respiration in Populus davidiana Dode plantations at different stand ages

Abstract Soil respiration from decomposing aboveground litter is a major component of the terrestrial carbon cycle. However, variations in the contribution of aboveground litter to the total soil respiration for stands of varying a...

Effects of stand characteristics on tree species richness in and around a conservation area of northeast Bangladesh

Abstract We investigated the effect of tree cover, forest patch and disturbances on tree species richness in a highly diverse conservation area of northeast Bangladesh. A systematic sampling protocol was adopted and 80 sub-plots fr...
