Brochure: Quality Standards for Nature Guides in Protected Areas
Project partners of ?NATURE EXPERIENCE? have prepared a bilingual brochure (German and Slovenian) with quality standards for nature guides in protected areas. Objective of the brochure is to support protected areas with:
? improving the quality level of nature guided tours
? providing the nature guides with feedback information
? supporting protected areas with exchange of experience at nature guiding

The brochure is divided into two parts: the first are recommendations for nature guided tours in protected areas and the second part consists of two questionnaires (qualitative and quantitative) for evaluation of the nature guides and guided tours.

The brochure is also available as a PDF document.


"Save our Surface": A research project for the end of oil age
Peak Oil and the following resource shortages mean an epoch break, which is comparable with dimension of the transition from medieval to modern times. As it was at that time also now a climate change is playing, but this time course caused by the fossil system of capitalism, an essential role. At the same time social struggles are increasing. The multiple crises of capitalism include energy supply for food, the profit production, the social aspect, which depends in capitalism from profit production and the political system. This proves to be less and less able to find meaningful answers to the system crisis.

Physical and numerical modelling of a bedload deposition area for an Alpine torrent
imgR. Kaitna, M. Chiari, M. Kerschbaumer, H. Kapeller, J. Zlatic-Jugovic, M. Hengl, J. Huebl

Floods including intensive bedload transport represent a severe hazard to the often densely populated alluvial fans of small Alpine watersheds. In order to minimize the risk of future inundation, an existing bedload deposition area on the fan upstream of the village Vorderberg in southern Austria is planned for reconstruction. The suggested concept for protection measures includes dividing the area into three similar sections of reduced slope. The three sections are to be separated by a block ramp. To test this concept and to optimize the sedimentation process, an analysis was performed by using both a physical scale model (1:30) and a numerical simulation tool (SETRAC). Four configurations for the section-outlet were tested based on three flood scenarios. The results support the general protection concept and suggest a minimum construction configuration, including a woody debris filter.
