Volume 19, Issue 4 , January 2022, , Pages 183-204


  Introduction: Urban growth has accelerated in recent decades, therefore, predicting the future growth pattern of the city is very important to prevent environmental, economic, and social problems. The city of Tabriz has also experienced rapid growth of urban lands due to significant demographic changes, ...  Read More

Agent-based conceptual development and optimization based on a genetic algorithm in water resource allocation

Amin Hosseiniasl; Mohammad Sadi Mesgari; Ali Akbar Matkan

Volume 16, Issue 2 , July 2018, , Pages 165-184

  Introduction: In water resource allocation, a good division is a major principle which is difficult to determine due to the existence of different criteria. To optimize water resource allocation, it would be efficient to simulate water resource systems in order to consider effective agents and reveal ...  Read More

Oil pipeline route optimization using multi-criteria analysis in GIS

shahram Mohammadi; Ali Akbar Matkan; Seyed Hossain Pourali; Babak Mirbagheri; Parvin Ahmadpour

Volume 15, Issue 2 , July 2017, , Pages 141-162

  Introduction: According to distribution requirements and the broad distance between production and consumption centres in Iran, linear infrastructure development plays an important role and should be considered as a vital necessity. Routing problems include many factors which are often incompatible with ...  Read More

Synoptic analysis of Arabian subtropical high pressure and subtropical jet Stream in shortest period of precipitation in South and South West of Iran

hassan lashkari; aliakbar matkan; majid azadi; zeinab mohammadi

Volume 14, Issue 4 , January 2017, , Pages 59-74

  Introduction: Precipitation is one of the most important atmospheric elements in any climate, and the world climate is categorized on the basis of this climatic element. In some climates, precipitation occurs in all seasons while, in others, precipitation only occurs in cold seasons; in yet other climates, ...  Read More

Estimating Eutrophication of Inland Waters Using Field Spectrometry Data (Case Study: Anzali Wetland)

Azadeh kazemi; Hamid Reza Jafari; Ali Torabian; Ali Akbar Matkan

Volume 12, Issue 2 , July 2014

  Remote sensing system, especially hyperspectral remote sensing require fundamental knowledge of spectral reflectance of chlorophyll a (chl a) for recognizing eutrophication of inland waters. The first objective of this study was to prepare and investigate the significant differences between the spectral ...  Read More

Application of Remote Sensing in Monitoring Faults and Alterations and Identifying the Relationship Between Lithology and Vegetation Cover in Siyah Bishe (Mazandaran)

Ali Akbar Matkan,; Mohammad Yazdi,; Davood Ashoorloo; Narges Sadati

Volume 9, Issue 4 , July 2012

  The Siyah Bisheh area is located in the central part of Alborz zone, 40 km to the south of Amol. Rock units exposed in the area consist of sedimentary (carbonates, sandstone, siltstone), volcano-sedimentary (andesite to andesitic tuff, tuff), ignimbrite and basalt. Once erosion and tectonism have rendered ...  Read More

Drought Assessment in Arid Regions Using Vegetation Indices - a Case Study of "Shirkooh of Yazd" in Central Iran

Mohsen Ebrahimi Khusfi; Roshanak Darvishzade; Aliakbar Matkan; Davood Ashourloo

Volume 7, Issue 4 , July 2010

  Since soil moisture and vegetation cover are the most important parameters effecting drought, analyses of the vegetation fraction and soil spectral signature, especially in the red and infra red bands, are essential in drought estimation. In this study, the Perpendicular Drought Index (PDI), Modified ...  Read More
