Abstract

Geographic Information System (GIS) technology is increasingly being utilized by earth scientists to study mountains and surface processes. State-of-the-art geomorphological investigations of the dynamic nature of mountain systems require the integration of knowledge from geographic information science (GIScience) and geomorphology for modeling surface processes and topogprahic evolution. Similarly, issues of scale and parameterization of process models in geomorphology require new developments in data modeling and spatial/temporal GIS analysis.
