Vignettes

Vignettes are stand-alone, illustrated electronic case studies that teach about geomorphology, surface processes, and/or Quaternary history. Vignettes can be used alone or in combination with the "Key Concepts in Geomorphology", the first in a new generation of textbooks. Vignettes allow faculty to customize the learning resources they offer students to enrich and personalize student learning experiences.

Tidal Currents in a Microtidal Estuary - Port Stephens, Australia
Timothy Austin
Port Stephens is a popular tourist destination located on the mid-north New South Wales (NSW) coast, 230 km north of Sydney, Australia (Figure 1). Despite the regions popularity, it is not protected from the ...

Understanding soil erosion and landscape evolution using computer based predictive models
Greg Hancock
The ability to measure and model soil erosion and resultant landscape evolution is important because soil erosion has a range of environmental impacts, including loss of organic matter and nutrients, reduction of ...

High resolution aerial imagery from an unmanned helicopter for mapping fluvial substrate size in Chile
Amy Woodget
OverviewThis research presents some initial outputs of an on-going study which aims to map fluvial substrate size distributions on the San Pedro River in Chile using very high resolution remote sensing imagery, ...

Application of remote sensing in geomorphology
MATTHEW BLACKETT
Remote sensing is the observation of surfaces or objects while not being in direct contact with them. By this definition, cameras are remote sensors, observing the environment around us but not requiring us to ...

Cold climate conditions as a driver of alluvial fan deposition in the Lost River Range, Idaho, USA
Megan Kenworthy, Center for Ecohydraulics Research, University of Idaho, Boise
Numerous large alluvial fans sit along the western front of the Lost River Range (LRR) in east-central Idaho, USA (Figure 1). These alluvial fans form where streams exit confined basins within the mountain range, ...

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 ...

Understanding the pattern of glaciations of Shaluli Shan in the southeastern Tibetan Plateau by using geomorphological mapping
Ping Fu
Geomorphological mapping at a large scale is a powerful tool in understanding the paleoglaciology of northern hemispheric ice sheets, and has recently been used in reconstructing the paleoglaciation of the ...

Suspended sediment yield from an Alpine proglacial zone - quantification and controls
Martin Geilhausen, Zurich University of Applied Sciences
Proglacial zones are newly-formed landscapes in transition from glacial to non-glacial conditions which are located in front of or just beyond the outer limits of glaciers. In the context of climate change and ...

A 54-year record of sediment yield linked with proglacial sedimentary dynamics
Martin Geilhausen, Zurich University of Applied Sciences
Proglacial zones are newly formed landscapes in front of or just beyond the outer limits of glaciers (fig. 1). They are out of equilibrium with the current climate and therefore highly sensitive to climate change. ...

Using technology as an aid to the geomorphologist
Sarah Robinson, Arizona State University
Geomorphology requires characterization of the earth's surface at sufficient high resolution in 3 dimensions to explicitly represent landforms. Measuring change requires repeat survey, thus adding the 4th ...
