E. Marín, N. Lavín, E. Hernández & A. Rúa
ACIDITY OF PRECIPITATION IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA – Acidity of precipitation in the Iberian Peninsula between 1986 and 1997 is studied in this paper. The main objectives are the analysis of its variability, seasonal cycle, and trend. The results show a higher acidity of precipitation in Portugal than in Spain, although precipitation is acid in both countries. In general, the pH variability is lower in Portugal than in Spain. In both countries there is a...

Circulação de ar na península de Tróia e costa da Galé

Carlos Silva Neto
AIR FLOW OVER THE TRÓIA PENINSULA AND THE COSTA DA GALÉ – In the summer, the Portuguese western coast is characterised by an evident dominance of north and northwest wind directions. Due the influence of the Arrábida mountain, the north wind suffers a deflection and blows from the west, southwest or even south over the Tróia Peninsula, where in the summer months there is a high frequency of wind directions between west and south. This...

Representações sobre a imagem na aprendizagem geográfica

Maria Fernanda Alegria
The word «image» can convey countless different meanings. Of the «author-work-audience»trilogy, the study of the two former has traditionally been the object of the greatest attention, and only recently has the focus started to shift to the reception of the visual messages as well. Every message is liable to being interpreted in a variety of different ways, but this polysemic characteristic is especially important in the case of images. Every image is an analogy, a...

Desinvestimento industrial e as regiões portuguesas. Reflexos da mudança no espaço económico internacional

Mário Vale & Rui Dias
INDUSTRIAL DIVESTMENT AND PORTUGUESE REGIONS WITHIN THE CHANGES IN THE INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC SPACE. The spatial impacts of capital mobility, especially foreign capital, are becoming increasingly complex and are extent, divestment is, in essence, another strategic option of firms and it may not be necessarily negative for regions. Still, the impacts are not identical to investment. In economic analysis, divestment in certain activities is seen as necessary to achieve regional economic restructuring. However, the time gap...

Que fronteiras para a UE?

Carminda Cavaco
This article addresses the identity of Europe, the project and process of the construction of Europe, the successive enlargements and the mobility of external borders from the perspective of a Europe of variable geometries. It attempts to develop the discourse on the “return to Europe” for the Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC), their movement towards democracy, their difficulties in entering the global market, EU assistance and new development dynamics. Then, the new enlargements for...

O retorno da paisagem à geografia. Apontamentos místicos

Jorge Gaspar
LANDSCAPE’S RETURN TO GEOGRAPHY – MYSTICAL NOTES – Landscapehas returned to the geographer’s agenda, at the same time that its actuality is manifested in other fields such as the Arts, Science and Humanities. Nowadays, as far as geographical approaches are concerned, we can consider several concepts of landscape, articulated with the different paradigms of this science.Apart from discussing this issue and its incidence in modern literature, the paper emphasizes some of the «new» sensory dimensions...

Imbricação de empresas transnacionais: uma análise do cluster automóvel em Portugal

Mário Vale
EMBEDDEDNESS OF TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS: A STUDY OF THEAUTOMOBILE CLUSTER IN PORTUGAL. The research carried out in this paper aims at understanding the economic action of embeddedness on ongoing socio-spatial structures and to conceptualise the role of inward investment in the regional development process. The stereotypical plundering of regional resources by foreign capital seems, in many cases, to belong to the past. Large firms, such as the transnationals, tend to emulate some organisational models characteristic to...

Le Portugal dans le livre de Geographie pour la jeunesse au XVIIIe Siècle et au début do XIXe

Bernard Huber
PORTUGAL IN GEOGRAPHY BOOKS FOR THE YOUNG IN THE 18TH CENTURYAND EARLY 19TH CENTURY. It is a little known fact but since the 18th century a small number of young people in most European countries have had access to many books on geography. What is Portugal’s position in this type of literature? What image do the authors want to give children through their texts and illustrations? This note seeks to find answers to these questions.

Comparação de configurações cartográficas através da regressão bidimensional

Maria Helena Dias, Colette Cauvin & Maria Fernanda Alegria
A COMPARASION OF CARTOGRAPHIC CONFIGURATIONS THROUGH BIDIMENSIONAL REGRESSION - Information given in ancient maps give rise to interesting problems about methodology that are not always easy to solve. Bidimensional regression, which was developed in the 1970's by W. Tobler, is a methodology that allows a comparasion to be drawn between cartographic configurations of different periods of time and permits them to be grouped or compared with current maps or even to detect any plagiarism. The...

Valuing alternative bundles of landscape attributes: cost-benefit analysis for the selection of optimal landscapes

João Lima Santos
The role of landscape valuation and extended cost-benefit analysis inlandscape conservation decision-making is first addressed. It is stressed that substantial research on how to value alternative conservation schemes is required, in order to cope with emerging policy needs. An analytical frame for the valuation of alternative landscape conservation schemes is then discussed. This frame enablesthe analyst to sequentially disaggregate values for whole landscape changes over attributes. This is an essential operation if the optimal bundle...

Caracterização geo-ecológica dos sistemas de cordões dunares da Estremadura

Maria Vergínia Henriques & Carlos Neto
GEO-ECOLOGYCAL STUDY OF SOME DUNE SYSTEMS IN THE PORTUGUESEESTREMADURA. The Portuguese Estremadura coastal area between Nazaré and Peniche displays great variety of landforms. Most are cliff systems cut in sedimentary rocks with incisions controlled by tectonic activity. In the river mouths sand bars and beaches are present. Beach systems make up about 40% of the referred coastline and have ridges of diverse form and size, and rates of vegetation cover. These dunes appear on the...

A rede hidrográfica no mapa de Portugal de Fernando Álvaro Seco (1560)

Suzanne Daveau
THE HIDROGRAPHIC NETWORK IN THE MAP OF PORTUGAL BY FERNANDO ÁLVARO SECO (1560). A cartographic examination of the hidrographic network demonstrates, on one hand, its high quality in general and allows us, on the other hand, to seek reasons for the mistakes in its drawing and orienting, as well as the omissions made. To this effect, the plotting of the rivers was compared with itineraries descriptions of that same period. An examination was also made...
