About this book

This book provides an integrated view of the principles and methods of digital terrain analysis. Its attention to first principles and focus on error analysis makes it a useful resource for scientists to uncover the method applications particular to their needs. The text covers a wide range of applications in the context of multi-scale problems of soil science and geology and presents a mathematical approach from a single author who is actively researching in the field and has published a number of fundamental papers. It outlines principles, methods, and then follows with examples in a simple set-up that builds on content.
