  • Changes in the hypsometric curve through mountain building resulting from concurrent tectonics and denudation
  • This paper simulates how the shapes of the hypsometric curves change through mountain building resulting from concurrent tectonics and denudation. Next, it discusses the relationship of the hypsometric curve to the stage of a geomorphic cycle
  • . Finally, the geomorphological implications of the hypsometric integral are examined.
  • Revisiting the hypsometric curve as an indicator of form and process in transport-limited catchment
  • network and catchment geometry. They show that the width to length ratio of the catchment has a significant influence on the shape of the hypsometric curve, though little on the hypsometric integral. Experimental results for simulated landforms from
  • Hypsometric forcing of stagnant ice margins: Pleistocene valley glaciers, San Juan Mountains, Colorado
  • The hypsometric integral and low streamflow in two Pennsylvania provinces
  • Mountain constitute the Earth's third pole, because they hypsometrically repeat the climate zones as far as the Arctic within smallest space. For this reason, the vertical distance and relief energy are characteristic and distinguishing features
  • The origin, the environment of formation and the orographic, morphographic and hypsometric features of landforms appearing on engineering geomorphological maps are treated. The definitions serve to help users understand all the information contained
  • This study focuses on the Mohand Ridge where the relationships between various morphometric parameters have been worked out. It shows that area is strongly correlated to perimeter and elongation ratio whereas its correlation to hypsometric integral
  • and wind velocity) were interpolated by the nearest neighbourhood (NN), inverse distance weighting (IDW), spline (SPL), hypsometric (HYP) and kriging (KRI) methods. The results were assessed by the root mean square error (RMSE). - (AM)
  • This paper presents the results of examining some aspects of river morphometry in Western Oregon to better understand the geologically recent history of Pacific-plate subduction. Changes in long profile, gradient, gradient index, pseudo-hypsometric
  • Studies of soil movement have been carried out in the Sudetes Mts. for nearly 30 years, mainly by means of wooden pegs (columns). Three hypsometric-climatic zones were distinguished : low meadows, up to a height of 800 m, old forest at 800-1 200 m
  • . The results of the research show that the lower hypsometric zones, in comparison to the highest parts of the mountains, are characterized by more favorable bioclimatic conditions as regards most of the criteria selected, excluding snow conditions for skiing
  • The aim of this paper is to gain a deeper understanding of the conditions under which surface-runoff and groundwater-discharge basins are expected to exhibit geomorphological differences. The AA. focus specifically on the hypsometric curve, which
  • The AA. attempt to correlate spatially varying rates of vertical tectonism along the southern frontal fault system of the San Gabriel Mountains, with corresponding hypsometric integrals and landscape fractal dimensions. They also seek to constrain
  • sea level. The measures of impact are geographical (longitudinal, latitudinal, and hypsometric) gradients. Similar gradients have already been calculated for Poland. For calculation of equations of regression and geographical gradients of air
  • From 1883 exact hypsometric maps of Alp glaciers were drawn which allow a geometric comparison with present maps. In the seventies of our century the first orthophotomaps of Alp glaciers were taken. The author gives a short description of the maps
  • hydrological and geomorphological statistics and descriptors such as the area-slope relationship, cumulative area distribution and hypsometric curve, along with Strahler and networking statistics. Care must be used for quantitative assessment of catchment
  • a geomorphometric study by observing river profile and characteristics of mountain fronts in order to find spatial variations and style of rock uplift. Mountain front sinuosity (Smf), area-altitude relations (Hypsometric curves), Vf and AF indices differ
  • Values of normalized hypsometry, hypsometric integral, and mean slope vs elevation are used in south-western North Carolina for 14 tributary basins and the Cullasaja basin as a whole to characterize landscape evolution following upstream knickpoint
