morphological mapping

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Mapping landform segments and facets using breaks of slope and inflections (Savigear (1965) AAAG55). ‘Landforms are discrete units that can readily be defined and verified at different scales by proven techniques, are therefore acceptable integrated classifiers of the landscape, and can be used to divide it into discrete segments’ (Bocco et al. (2001) Geomorph. 39, 3–4).
