The largest outbreak flood, the Lake Agassiz flood, occurred sometime before 10,800 years ago and had a peak discharge of about 30,000 cubic meters per second. Data were organized and presented as products from a geographic information system, which is capable of analyzing associations among the various types of data and provides the ability to map in detail individual reaches of the river system and adjacent environments see. Geographers contribute to policy and decision making in a variety of ways Wilbanks, 1985. In collaboration with researchers in other disciplines, geographers are working to help policy makers understand the structure and root causes of hunger. This ensured the enlightenment of the various dimensions of spatial inequality and its implications for regional policy.
Senior Capstone Seminar in Urban and Regional Studies. The present study lays emphasis on suggesting the suitable measures for improvement of SocioEconomic well being of slum dwellers in the Srinagar city. Most of these books are located in G 70. The book highlights many examples of how the new economic geography is reshaping development objectives: from initiatives to foster growth via enhanced agglomeration and improved local connectivity to the world economy, to special decentralization programs that channel resources to lagging regions. The student will discover the role of politics, public safety, education and other important issues in the development of the city through course lectures, readings, discussion and presentations by guest speakers. Essentialist conceptions of neighbourhood culture among employers, educators and institutional staff contribute to the neighbourhood effects phenomenon.

Public-private partnerships can also bring electronic connectivity to lagging areas.
