  • Concept ; Epistemology ; Geomorphology ; History of geography ; History of ideas ; Teaching of geography ; United States of America
  • This essay concerns the history of geomorphology and its value as a pedagogical device. A thematic set of the historic literature can be used to demonstrate to students the scientific method, the origin, testing, and evolution of hypotheses, how
  • explanations develop in this field, and that science proceeds through individual working in a sociological context. Including history of geomorphology in the curriculum helps to place contemporary research in the perspective of the past as well

  • Geomorphological signatures : classification of aggregated slope unit objects from digital elevation and remote sensing data
  • Automated mapping ; Canada ; Classification ; Discriminant analysis ; Geomorphology ; Numerical model ; Remote sensing ; SPOT ; Slope gradient ; Spectral signature ; Yukon
  • The concept of a geomorphological signature is developed for classifying and mapping slope units with an automated procedure for analysing digital elevation and remote sensing data. Slope units are extracted from a digital elevation model (DEM
  • ) using a break of slope rule on downslope profiles. Each slope unit is an aggregated object of continuous pixels and is summarized with 5 suites of variables : shape, topography, topographic variability, spectral characteristics, and variability
  • in spectral characteristics. A ten-class scheme is used to classify slope units for a study area in southwest Yukon, Canada.

  • The geomorphological impacts of limestone quarrying
  • England ; Geomorphology ; Human impact ; Impact ; Karst ; Landscape ; Limestone ; Quarry ; United Kingdom ; Water resources ; World
  • This paper explains why limestone is such an important commodity, examines the technique by which it is excavated, the geomorphological impacts of those techniques, and describes how such impacts may be minimised. It is based largely on research
  • in Britain. Quarrying may also impact on karst water resources, particularly where excavation takes place beneath the water table, but these impacts tend to be site specific whilst te geomorphological impacts are more general.
