Abstract

The AA. apply optical and microwave remote sensing systems and GIS methodologies to case studies framed within the fluvial and alpine environments. They use the scale, pattern, and process paradigm to explore landscape relationships in those environments. Satellite image processing, change-detection analysis, digital elevation models, GIS-derived geomorphic indices and variables, composition and pattern metrics of landscape organization, and scale-dependent analyses are described and related to the study of river channel abandonment and the alpine treeline ecotone. They demonstrate the use of such techniques in geomorphic studies
