Abstract

This paper discusses some results from analyses of slope and aspects computed with a geomorphometric program, MICRODEM. The results discussed here primarily deal with 2 digital elevation models (DEMs) produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, although some results will be compared by statistics generated from 68 DEMs from a variety of sources and scales. Mount St. Helens, Washington, provides a mountainous region centered on a stratovolcano. West Point, New York, provides a moderately steep region with NE-SW trending ridges. Slope and aspects calculations from DEMs reflect the underlying terrain, the digitization process, and the chosen algorithm
