About this book

This book provides a synthesis of the methodological and technological developments in terrain data acquisition and analysis through a combination of review chapters and research papers. It also illustrates recent development on how terrain can be used to answer geomorphological questions, and fully analyses the effect of Remote Sensing and GIS on traditional geomorphology.

compelling and very informative reading (Int. Journal of Remote Sensing, Vol.22 No.12, 2001
