GIS 410 Geomorphology and GIS

Constructs a knowledge base of surficial earth system processes for informing spatial analysis. Concepts of landform development and evolution will be addressed in desert, mountainous, arctic and other environments through the lens of a GIS. Multiple spatial analysis techniques will be applied throughout the course in the context of each geomorphologic focus. Other geomorphological methodologies will be examined to extend the scope of GIS analysis beyond physical processes to include environmental and social factors.
