The ramon plantation and secondary vegetation had generally well-structured, shallow soils (21 to 38 cm deep) with high stoniness and rockiness
The most dramatic change occurred between cores H and I at a point which approximately correlated with the transition from erosional to depositional characteristics (suggested by increasing rockiness
at the surface and a change in soil texture; generally, soils below I comprised finer particles).
As is often the case, natural disasters obtain because humans have, as George Perkins Marsh put it more than a century ago, "rearranged nature's original balances." In his classic, Man and Nature, Marsh explained how it is that trees won't grow any more on the Aegean hillsides, which have been browsed off into hard dry rockiness
by a thousand years of Grecian goats.
After all, the $1,850,000, 22-acre site - on a steep hill that had been passed over by other developers because of its rockiness
- had magnificent views.
Solar photovoltaic collectors may require a large area array, which could cause locomotion problems, particularly in areas of high rockiness
or steep hills.
However, the relationship between the two parties has been marred by tensions and rockiness
in recent years.
Despite their rockiness
in Europe, Rangers sit top of the SPL and have lost just one domestic game in the calendar year.
It would be difficult to imagine two landscapes less alike than the gentle green artifice of Capability Brown parkland and the lunar rockiness
of Monument Valley.
I don't think anything that goes on for a long time can avoid periods of rockiness
. We've been through that, and that's fine.
We also estimated a multiple regression model with the index of rockiness
added to the model, y = [[Beta].sub.0] + [x.sub.1][[Beta].sub.1] + [x.sub.2][[Beta].sub.2] v(X)e, where y and [x.sub.1] were as previously defined, and [x.sub.2] was the index of rockiness
All over the Highlands and off the west coast there is a mixture of rough coastline and rockiness
and islands - then there are palm trees as well because of the Gulf Stream.
Cores were taken in so far as possible from the region occupied by seedling roots, but rockiness
prevented coring to the full root depth ([approximately]10 cm) for seedlings of C.
