Insights into the tectonic topography of the present-day landscape of the central Iberian Peninsula (Spain)

Abstract

This paper examines topography-structure relationships in an effort to evaluate tectonic signatures in the landscape, paying special attention to recent tectonic activity. Topography, defined by elevation data, was analysed by both GIS and trend-surface analysis. Digital data were used to produce a Digital Elevation Model, allowing for rapid characterization of landscapes and the analysis of tectonic structure-topography relationships. By combining slope gradients and slope orientations, the AA. created maps of topography roughness, in which incised river valleys are well described
