Paperback: $18.96

The military response to Hurricane Sandy was historically significant. For the first time, dual status commanders—military commanders authorized by law to serve in both state and federal status...

Here particularly with a focus on the spatial and temporal results of different CAP reform options. Therefore the incorporation of Geographic Information System into the applied agent-based model AgriPoliS has been a part of the present study. Furthermore an extensive analysis of the spatial sensitivity of the model has been performed showing the model to be stable in its results. Having presented an opportunity to evaluate the reliability of AgriPoliS the foundation is laid for investigating the effects different CAP-reform options have on the structural development in three European regions. The investigation of the three regions enables at the same time one to see how the same CAP reform options propagate differently within the different European regions.< Less
