Abstract:

The specific aims of this study are to develop and validate computational methodologies to characterize regional geomorphology at multiple scales using remote sensing data A University of Texas portion of the study focuses on the remote sensing computations and our portion focuses on paleohydrological and geomorphological interpretations In the University of Arizona portion of the project we found that the quantitative remote sensing imagery provided key data on gradients and patterns of past floods paleofloods We were able to use these data in quantifying the paleohydraulic parameters of mm, high-energy floods, particularly in the arid landscapes of Australia and Arizona
