Abstract:

Thirty eight terrain cells have been selected and investigated with the FRG, with selection based on tree species, agricultural land use, soil types, and geology. Aerial photos were used to accurately map distributions. Approximately 24 sites were identified as being critical to vehicle mobility, and detailed terrain descriptions, using factors required by the Army Mobility Model AMM were collected. Six sites have been selected and examined for studies of relations among soil dynamics, generic descriptors, and vehicle mobility indexes. Originator-supplied keywords include Cross-country Data bases Terrain factors Terrain conditions Soil dynamics and Mobility indexes.
