Book Description :

Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative terrain characterization and analysis, and has traditionally focused on the investigation of terrestrial and planetary landscapes. However, applications of marine geomorphometry have now moved beyond the simple adoption of techniques developed for terrestrial studies, driven by the rise in the acquisition of high-resolution seafloor data and by the availability of user-friendly spatial analytical tools. Considering that the seafloor represents 71% of the surface of our planet, this is an important step towards understanding the Earth in its entirety. This volume is the first one dedicated to marine applications of geomorphometry. It showcases studies addressing the five steps of geomorphometry: sampling a surface (e.g., the seafloor), generating a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) from samples, preprocessing the DTM for subsequent analyses (e.g., correcting for errors and artifacts), deriving terrain attributes and/or extracting terrain features from the DTM, and using and explaining those terrain attributes and features in a given context. Throughout these studies, authors address a range of challenges and issues associated with applying geomorphometric techniques to the complex marine environment, including issues related to spatial scale, data quality, and linking seafloor topography with physical, geological, biological, and ecological processes. As marine geomorphometry becomes increasingly recognized as a sub-discipline of geomorphometry, this volume brings together a collection of research articles that reflect the types of studies that are helping to chart the course for the future of marine geomorphometry.

Book Description :

From the reviews: "Bishop and Schroder (both, Univ. of Nebraska at Omaha) have brought together an impressive group of practitioners in the relatively new application of geographic information science to mountain geomorphology. In doing so, they have produced valuable, first, overall coverage of a high-tech approach to mountain, three-dimensional research. More than 40 contributing authors discuss a wide range of related aspects.... The book is well bound and well produced; each chapter provides an extensive source of references. The numerous line drawings are clearly reproduced, although the mediocre quality of photographic reproduction limits the value of air photographs and satellite images. As is characteristic of many edited collections, there is some variation in chapter quality. Some of the writing is so dense that it requires minute concentration--one chapter, for instance, has 14 pages of references from a total of 43 pages. Nevertheless, this is a vital compendium for a rapidly expanding field of research. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (J. D. Ives, Choice, March 2005)

Automated Classification of Basic level Terrain Features in Digital Elevation Models

Automated Classification of Basic level Terrain Features in Digital Elevation Models Book

Publisher : Unknown
Release : 1991
ISBN : 0987650XXX
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This study addresses a two-class problem in automatic terrain classification. the basic-level terrain feature selected for initial delineation is a mount - an aggregation of elevated features including hills, mountains, and ranges. All remaining areas are classified collectively as non-mount. A method was developed to partition digital elevation models (DEMs) into mount and non- mount areas automatically. Then, the developed method is compared to those results obtained by a manual classification of synthetic stereo images produced from the same digital elevation data. The results of this work suggest that it may be possible to replicate the manual identification of mounts in certain physiographic regions. However, the general utility of the mount/nonmount classification approach appears to be limited by the nature of the regional terrain and by the quality of available digital data.

Book Description :

"Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative land-surface analysis and be part of an interdisciplinary approach to understanding natural hazards. It spans the research range from simple land observation to mathematical models of land surfaces. In this geomorphometric context, modelling is used to generate computerized representations of parts of the Earth's surface, based on digital elevation/surface models (DEM/DSM) and additional data and observations. New and improved algorithms for modelling both physico-geographical and geological processes and landforms how they change in space and time are presented in this volume: Data acquisition methods for acquiring high resolution elevation data, at local to regional scales. Novel methods for processing computation of extensive sets of elevation data and the improvement of existing methods. Application paths which present, how different data and methods give a new prompt to the various aspects of monitoring natural processes and modelling of natural hazards"--Back cover.

Fundamentals of Geomorphology

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

The new fourth edition of Fundamentals of Geomorphology continues to provide a comprehensive introduction to the subject by discussing the latest developments in the field, as well as covering the basics of Earth surface forms and processes. The revised edition has an improved logically cohesive structure, added recent material on Quaternary environments and landscapes, landscape evolution and tectonics, as well as updated information in fast-changing areas such as the application of dating techniques, digital terrain modelling, historical contingency, preglacial landforms, neocatastrophism, and biogeomorphology. The book begins with a consideration of the nature of geomorphology, process and form, history, and geomorphic systems, and moves on to discuss: Endogenic processes: structural landforms associated with plate tectonics and those associated with volcanoes, impact craters, and folds, faults, and joints. Exogenic processes: landforms resulting from, or influenced by, the exogenic agencies of weathering, running water, flowing ice and meltwater, ground ice and frost, the wind, and the sea; landforms developed on limestone; and long-term geomorphology, a discussion of ancient landforms, including palaeosurfaces, stagnant landscape features, and evolutionary aspects of landscape change. Featuring over 400 illustrations, diagrams, and tables, Fundamentals of Geomorphology provides a stimulating and innovative perspective on the key topics and debates within the field of geomorphology. Written in an accessible and lively manner, and providing guides to further reading, chapter summaries, and an extensive glossary of key terms, this is an indispensable undergraduate level textbook for students of physical geography.

Book Description :

Knowledge has no limits and everyone has the opportunity to gain it and expand the view and horizon of understanding. Nothing in this world remains permanent, everything changes. Hence the field of morphology of the Earth (geomorphology) provides a basis for exploring, understanding and comprehending the forms and processes that occur in our surrounding. This book presents some of the ideas and understanding about geomorphology: 1) Learn about the effect of deforestation and then reforestation on river channel morphology. 2) Understand the composite mathematical modelling for continuous simulations of hydro-geomorphological processes. 3) Know about the process-response models for estimation of cliff erosion and its quantitative predictions. 4) Grow your knowledge about various geomorphometric tools that are available in freely available GIS software.
