    The theme of this proceedings volume is the latest research on geomorphic characteristics and processes associated with natural hazards. Presentations cover a gamut of types of disasters throughout the world, describing research and applications of studies in the U.S. and other countries. The book begins with a collection of papers giving a basic background... more...

  • Mathematical Morphology in Geomorphology and GISciby Behara Seshadri Daya Sagar

    CRC Press 2013; US$ 104.95

    Mathematical Morphology in Geomorphology and GISci presents a multitude of mathematical morphological approaches for processing and analyzing digital images in quantitative geomorphology and geographic information science (GISci). Covering many interdisciplinary applications, the book explains how to use mathematical morphology not only to perform... more...

  • Systemtheorie in der Geomorphologieby Kirsten von Elverfeldt

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2012; US$ 30.54

    <P>Benötigen wir für eine erfolgreiche Erforschung geomorphologischer Prozesse und Formen überhaupt Theorie? Sind potentiell gefährliche Prozesse wie Hangrutschungen nicht ganz offensichtlich vorhanden? Diese Fragen nach den theoretischen Grundannahmen der eigenen Disziplin berühren das Selbstverständnis der Geomorphologie, deren Vertretern oftmals... more...

  • Remote Sensing and Actuation Using Unmanned Vehiclesby Haiyang Chao; YangQuan Chen

    Wiley 2012; US$ 106.95

    Unmanned systems and robotics technologies have become very popular recently owing to their ability to replace human beings in dangerous, tedious, or repetitious jobs.

  • Surface Modelingby Tian-Xiang Yue

    CRC Press 2011; US$ 165.95

    Although GIS provides powerful functionality for spatial analysis, data overlay and storage, these spatially oriented systems lack the ability to represent temporal dynamics, which is a major impediment to its use in surface modeling. However, rapid development of computing technology in recent years has made real-time spatial analysis and real-time... more...

  • The History of the Study of Landforms: Volume 1 - Geomorphology Before Davis (Routledge Revivals)by Richard J. Chorley; Antony J. Dunn; Robert P. Beckinsale

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 54.95

    This re-issue, first published in 1964, is the first of a seminal series analysing the development of the study of landforms, from both the geographical and geological point of view, with especial emphasis upon fluvial geomorphology. Volume 1 treats the subject up to the first important statement of the cycle of erosion by W. M. Davis in 1889, and... more...

  • Geomorphometryby Tomislav Hengl; Hannes I. Reuter

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 124.00

    Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative land-surface analysis. It draws upon mathematical, statistical, and image-processing techniques to quantify the shape of earth's topography at various spatial scales. The focus of geomorphometry is the calculation of surface-form measures (land-surface parameters) and features (objects), which may be... more...
