With recent innovations in the arena of remote sensing and geographic information systems, the use of geoinformatics in applied geomorphology is receiving more attention than ever. <STRONG>Geoinformatics in Applied Geomorphology</STRONG> examines how modern concepts, technologies, and methods in geoinformatics can be used to solve a wide variety of applied geomorphologic problems, such as characterization of arid, coastal, fluvial, aeolian, glacial, karst, and tectonic landforms; natural hazard zoning and mitigations; petroleum exploration; and groundwater exploration and management.
Using case studies to illustrate concepts and methods, this book covers:
<LI>Arid environments, such as the Thar desert, West Texas, the Qatar Peninsula, and the Dead Sea areas </LI> <LI>Coastal shoreline changes in Kuwait</LI> <LI>Coastal zone management in India</LI> <LI>Estuarine bathymetric study of Tampa Bay, Florida</LI> <LI>Fluvial landforms of the Elbe river basin, Germany</LI> <LI>Subsurface coastal geomorphology and coastal morphological changes due to tsunamis in the East coast of India</LI> <LI>The Himalayas, Jammu & Kashmir, Western Ghats, and Precambrian terrain of South India</LI>
The result of extensive research by an interdisciplinary team of contributors,<STRONG> Geoinformatics in Applied Geomorphology</STRONG> is designed for students, researchers, and professionals in the areas of geomorphology, geological engineering, geography, remote sensing, and geographic information systems.
