Beschreibung: Socio-Economic Development and Environmental Change in the United Kingdom and Austria from 1830 Until Present - This project focuses on the relation between socio-economic systems and their natural environment and the changes in this relation connected with the transformation of a predominantly agrarian society to the upcoming of the industrial society and its subsequent alterations during the industrialized period. We introduce a physical perspective on the process of industrial transformation ? which we conceive as a process of mutual development of socio-economic and natural systems: Changes in the mode of production and population result in alterations of the natural environment and vice versa. Our research focuses on the development of physical exchange processes (socio-economic metabolism) and their relation to changes in the use and cover of land. We present an empirical analysis of a consistent data set on the development of socio-economic flows of materials and energy and the changes in land use and cover for the national economies of the United Kingdom and Austria during the last 170 years. We relate the calculated indicators for the development of the socio-economic metabolism and land use to demographic and economic indicators. Using a comparative approach to analyzing the development of industrial transformation in two countries with significant differences concerning their natural and socio-economic preconditions provides new insights into the physical dimensions of the process of industrial modernization, the changes in resource use and environmental change.
