T91. Geological and Geomorphological Applications of Digital Terrain

Carlos Henrique Grohmann, Christopher J. Crosby

Monitoring and quantification of rates of geomorphic processes requires
repeated acquisition of accurate, high-resolution topographic information.
The rapid growth in the availability of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
such as the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, TerraSAR-X Satellite Mission,
ICESat and CryoSat missions, photogrammetric-derived DEMs from orbital
imagery (ALOS, ASTER, SPOT) or from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and
laser altimetry/scanning (LiDAR), provide a way to look at the topography
of our planet with an unprecedented detail, often allowing the recognition
of previously unknown features and the establishment of their spatial

Digital Terrain Analysis (DTA) provides the framework for terrain
quantification, segmentation and classification, aiming at the recognition
and simulation of geomorphic processes.  Advances in
DTA have had impacts in areas such as hazard andrisk assessment,
geomorphologic process evaluation, morphotectonic interpretation, and
geophysical data processing.

This session will provide an excellent opportunity to present and discuss
recent advances in methods,algorithms, and applications of DTA to geology
and geomorphology.

The 2013 GSA annual meeting takes place one week after the
Geomorphometry2013 (http://geomorphometry.org/2013) international
conference in Nanjing, China; we expect this session at GSA to  build on
the momentum from the China conference and to extend and expand DTA
discussions and networking between scientists in this rapid-growing field.
