Digital Terrain Analysis in Soil Science and GeologyBy
- Igor Florinsky
Digital Terrain Analysis in Soil Science and Geology provides soil scientists and geologists with an integrated view of the principles and methods of digital terrain analysis. Its attention to first principles and focus on error analysis makes it a useful resource for scientists to uncover the method applications particular to their needs. Digital Terrain Analysis in Soil Science and Geology covers a wide range of applications in the context of multi-scale problems of soil science and geology.
Soil Scientists and Geologists (particularly geomorphometrists and geomorphologists) working with digital terrain modeling and digital elevation modeling.
