Assumptions Behind Ridership Forecasts for High Speed Ground Transportation Systems and Their Validity: The California-Nevada Case Study
Accurate prediction of ridership is one of the key elements for approval of any transit project and eventually for survival after the system begins operation. This is particularly true...

Technology Transfer Considerations Associated with Maglev Programs
Magnetic levitation (maglev) high-speed ground transportation technology, near operational status in Germany and well along in development in Japan, is now a candidate for transfer to...

ICE-HSR-System—Infrastructure, Rolling Stock, Operation
High-Speed trains such as the Japanese Shinkansen train in operation since 1964, the French TGV (train a grande vitesse) introduced in 1981 and the German ICE (InterCityExpress) running...

Coastal Management and Ocean Industries in East Germany, from Central Planning Ineffectiveness Towards Local and Regional Development Strategies
In so far, the preconditions for the implementation of decentralized development tools both in coastal management and in ocean industries may be quite ideal in East Germany: there is the...

Sand Losses from an Artificially Nourished Beach Stabilized by Groynes
Norderney is one of the East Frisian barrier Islands in Germany. Severe dune erosion jeopardized the settlement and neccessitated the use of seawalls and groynes after 1850. Even though...

Vertical Distribution of Sediment Under Waves
This paper is based on the research foundation of vertical relative distribution of sediment concentration and alluvial bed stability under waves. Amended theories of E. W. Lane and A.A....

The Ecosystem of the Wadden Sea
The Wadden Sea is a unique landscape and one of the last large and relatively undisturbed ecosystems in northwest Europe and therefore a wetland of international importance. At the same...

The Protection of the Wadden Sea in an International Perspective: Planning, Protection, and Management of the Wadden Sea
This paper describes the state of the protection, conservation and management of the Wadden Sea by the three countries, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands in the framework of their joint...

Coastal Protection in the Past Coastal Zone Management in the Future? Case Study for the Ems—Weser Area, Germany
The mainland along the German North Sea coast is low lying land; parts are sheltered by islands. History of coastal protection started about one thousand years ago; in the 13th century...

Integrating Advanced Telematics into Urban and Regional Transport Policies—Munich Greater Area Case Study
Before the background of the emerging of advanced transport telecommunication and informatics several traffic information and control systems are under development with a bottom up approach....

Univeral System Architecture — Based on European Field Trials
From the ongoing major IVHS/RIT operational field tests in Europe and taking into account the results of the 3 years Berlin field trial LISB it can be assumed that the winning communications...
