Automated recognition of valley heads from digital elevation models

Auteur :
TRIBE, A.

Description :
An automated technique for recognizing valley heads from digital elevation models is presented. The technique has been developed for valley head recognition because valley heads are known locations of geomorphological activity and because areal features have been largely ignored in the automated landform recognition literature. The problem of valley head recognition is divided into valley head location and valley head delineation, and the technique is developed using a DEM representing a simple artificial landscape.
