Modeling Flooding Extent Due to Hurricane Floyd in the Coastal Plains of North Carolina 2000 959 In this article two modeling approaches were developed based on the use of US Geological Survey digital elevation model (DEM) data. These models were utilized to delineate the extent of flooding induced by precipitation from Hurricane Floyd in a port...
Remote Sensing and Geomorphometry for Studying Relief Production in High Mountains 2003 623 Mountain topography is the result of highly scale-dependent interactions involving climatic, tectonic, and surface processes. No complete understanding of the geodynamics of mountain building and topographic evolution yet exists, although numerous co...
Spatial Characterization, Resolution, and Volumetric Change of Coastal Dunes using Airborne LIDAR: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina 2002 305 The technological advancement in topographic mapping known as airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) allows researchers to gather highly accurate and densely sampled coastal elevation data at a rapid rate. The problem is to determine the optima...
Techniques for GIS Modeling of Coastal Dunes 2002 683 Coastal dunes present a unique problem to coastal scientists because of the dynamic nature of most coastal dune systems. Coastal dunes can change shape quickly and frequently due to storm-generated winds and waves. Prevailing winds can transport sign...
