  • Problems in automated recognition of valley features from digital elevation models and a new method toward their resolution
  • Drainage network ; Greece ; Hydrology ; Landslide ; Model ; Numerical model ; Peloponnesus ; Valley
  • In this paper a new method for recognizing valley bottoms is presented. This is based on two improvements of Carroll's (1983) method, and produces a network that reflects the topography well. The network is used to locate valley heads. Once located
  • , the valley heads are delineated using criteria suggested by geomorphologists and hydrologists. The resultant valley heads are generally well recognized although two problems are evident : a) there are a number of commission errors; and b) the valley heads

  • Late Holocene valley-bottom aggradation and erosion in the South Loup River Valley, Nebraska
  • The chronology of aggradation and erosion is developed from ten radiocarbon ages. After discussing fluvial erosion and floodplain aggradation in the South Loup River Valley, the paper reconstructs the late Holocene alluvial records of the North
  • and Middle Loup River Valleys from published reports and articles.

  • On the mathematical description of glaciated valley cross sections
  • Geomorphometry ; Glacial erosion ; Glacial features ; Methodology ; Valley
  • The AA. examine implicit bias in power-law equation analyses introduced by the use of logarithmic data transformations, and discuss problems associated with cases where part of the original erosional form of the glacial channel or glacial valley has

  • There exist two systems of valleys. The subsequent system, based on a flat central ridge, disturbed the older, more extensive net of consequent valleys by numerous piracies. This development took place mainly during the Pleistocene. - (MS)

  • Sediment transport in a proglacial valley, Sermilik, East Greenland
  • Climatic variation ; Cold area ; Glacial features ; Greenland ; Hydrology ; Model ; Sediment transport ; Valley
  • Detailed investigations of sediment transport have been carried out in a proglacial valley at the Mitdluagkat Glacier in East Greenland. The results from 1989, 1990 and 1991 have been compared with earlier measurements of sediment transport

  • Some aspects of valley asymmetry in the high Drakensberg
  • Earth surface processes ; High mountain ; Mass movement ; Mountain ; Palaeoclimatology ; Periglacial features ; Slope ; Slope gradient ; South Africa ; Valley
  • Valley asymmetry at high altitudes in the Drakensberg may be the result of periglacial processes. A tentative hypothesis is presented. - (AJC)

  • Shangri-La and Pakistan's Hunza river valley
  • Explores the reality behind the popular image of Shangri-La based on James Hilton's 1933 novel Lost Horizons. The A. contends that the Hunza valley is not the utopian place described in the book. The lure of the Hunza as Shangri-La has never been

  • A model of late Quaternary landscape development in the Delaware Valley, New Jersey and Pennsylvania
  • This paper proposes a chronologic model for late Quaternary nonglacial events, and relates them to glacial episodes in the Delaware Valley of eastern Pennsylvania and northwestern New Jersey.

  • The influence of rock mass strength on glacial valley cross-profile morphometry : a case study from the Southern Alps, New Zealand
  • Geomorphometry ; Glacial erosion ; Glacial features ; Model ; New Zealand ; Rocks ; South Island ; Valley
  • The purpose of this paper is to examine the model developed by Hirano and Aniya (1988, 1989, 1990) for the development of the glacial valley cross-profile, and to offer an alternative model using rock mass strength (RMS) and morphometric data

  • A fog forecasting method in a deeply embanked valley
  • Belgium ; Fog ; Forecast;Prediction ; Meteorology ; Meuse ; Model ; Statistics ; Valley
  • This paper presents a statistical model used to forecast fog in the Meuse valley in Belgium. The method is a bootstrap discriminant analysis using eight predictors : river surface temperature, air pressure, air temperature at two elevations, wind
  • 1992
  • Floodplain evolution in a New South Wales coastal valley, Australia : spatial process variations
  • The different forms of valley-floor troughs and their long-profile variability are described prior to a discussion of age implications for the floodplain and Holocene evolution in the Bellinger Valley.
