Identification of mapped ice-margin positions in western New York from digital terrain-analysis and soil databases

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study identifies inconsistencies in ice extent in the Salamanca Re-entrant western New York as mapped using soil properties and surficial geology. The A. uses a raster-based approach to extract the soil pH, silt, and clay contents from digital soil databases; and the morphometric parameters of elevation, slope, terrain ruggedness, and planform and profile curvature from mosaiced 10-m digital elevation models. These results highlight both previous difficulties and the source of the mapped differences, suggesting that a GIS analysis of former ice margins is a productive preliminary step to their precise delineation
