Document title

Identifying large-scale erosion and deposition proceses from airborne gamma radiometrics and digital elevation models in a weathered landscape

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper begins with brief descriptions of how gamma ray data are collected from aircraft, the relationship between gamma ray signatures, and the properties of underlying rock and regolith. A methodology for identifying the particular spatial patterns associated with erosion and deposition is described and applied to gamma ray data from small drainage basins in southeastern Australia. A short review of digital elevation model (DEM) generation from geophysical survey data is also presented since this may be a substitute for a more conventional approach in which DEMs are generated from contour data derived by photogrammetry
