Spatial Theory, Temporality and Public Action

Spatial Theory, Temporality and Public Action

Innovation and information combined with ICTs constitute a new framework which questions the theories on the functioning of classic space and stresses the need to think of new frames. The principle of acentrality proposed here highlights the role of politics in the structuring of space, as well as the role of temporality. For public planning policies to be relevant, acentrality and temporality must be taken into account.

Spatially Differentiated, Temporally Variegated: The Study of Life Cycles for a Better Understanding of Suburbia in German City Regions

al. 2012 ); only the debate of the “Zwischenstadt” or ‘in-between city’ has found some recognition in the international community since then ( Keil/Addie 2015 ). Our approach is guided by three perspectives that have not been part of the standard repertoire of empirical suburban studies to date. Firstly, we pursue an analysis which is not predetermined by normative, and thus primarily negative, claims about suburbia. Secondly, besides spatial differentiation, this study focuses also on investigating the temporal variation in the development trajectory of

The Use of the Temporal Oscillation Model to Assess Variability of Precipitation

Abstract

The article presents the variability of precipitation based on the temporal oscillation model. Series of monthly precipitation totals from the years 1955-1980 were used for the analysis. The detailed research referred to the selected 10 measurement stations in central Poland and 17 in southern Poland. Data series from all the measurement stations were verified in terms of their statistical homogeneity. Furthermore, in accordance with the model guidelines, the tendency was assessed. This was followed by calculation of seasonal and accidental oscillations of precipitation. The results were used to present the variability of precipitation in the two areas studied. The measurement stations in southern Poland showed a much higher mean variation of seasonal oscillations of monthly precipitation. Accidental precipitation, however, is much more significant for the total variability of precipitation in southern Poland.

Heat stress and occupational health and safety – spatial and temporal differentiation

Abstract

Evidence of climatic health hazards on the general population has been discussed in many studies but limited focus is placed on developing a relationship between climate and its effects on occupational health. Long working hours with high physical activity can cause health problems for workers ranging from mild heat cramps to severe heat stroke leading to death. The paper presents the possible risk of heat hazard to outdoor workers, using the example of Warsaw. The heat stress hazard, defined by WBGT values above 26 and 28°C and UTCI above 32 and 38°C, is assessed from two perspectives: its spatial distribution on a local scale and its temporal changes during the 21st century due to climate change. City centre and industrial districts were identified as the places with the greatest heat stress hazard. The number of heat stress days in a year (as predicted for the 21st century) is increasing, meaning that heat-related illnesses are more likely to have a direct impact on workers’ health.
