Geomorphologists played a major role in the 1960s and 1970s in terrain research as the potential of the computer was realised for both storing and manipulating landform information. With growth in the subject area, further technological development, and a growing input from other disciplines, much of this research has moved into the domain of GIS and Remote Sensing, where the involvement of geomorphologists has inevitably been reduced, despite the importance of this type of research to geomorphology in general. This book comprises selected and full-refereed papers from a recent BGRG Annual Conference which was held with these issues in mind. The book contains both review and original and significant research papers that consider recent methodological developments in, and the constraints of, current terrain monitoring and modelling methods in geomorphology, along with the application of these methods to specific geomorphological problems. By providing up-to-date research by leaders in the field of terrain study this book will be of enormous value to undergraduates, research students and research scientists in geomorphology, mapping science and GIS and Remote Sensing, as well as those working in industry who use, or need to apply terrain research methods.
