Marine Geomorphology: Geomorphic Processes, Hazards, and Paradoxes in Monterey Canyon
Douglas Smith
Introduction While traditional geomorphic studies focus on the geologic processes and products that shape our terrestrial topography, there are equally exciting opportunities to explore the other 71% of the planet ...

Automatic extraction of flow paths from digital elevation models
Kyungrock Paik, Korea University
Once a raindrop falls on the ground, it flows downward. During this journey, the raindrop joins other raindrops and the mass/volume of the water increases, flowing along creeks, streams, and rivers. This is called ...

Rock glaciers: their ice and debris balances
Brian Whalley
Rock glaciers are best defined by their topography (Fig. 1) and that they flow slowly. Their dynamic character is attributed to the flow of ice deforming the associated weathered rock debris. Typically, they flow ...

Volcanic History and Cinder Cone Erosion at Newberry Volcano, Oregon
Steve Taylor
Surface landforms result from a balance of constructional and erosional processes operating at geological time scales of 102 to 105 years. The landscape evolves over time as masses of earth material are transferred ...
