By Siddan Anbazhagan,S.K. Subramanian,XIAOJUN YANG

With fresh thoughts within the area of distant sensing and geographic info platforms, using geoinformatics in utilized geomorphology is receiving extra cognizance than ever. Geoinformatics in utilized Geomorphology examines how glossy suggestions, applied sciences, and strategies in geoinformatics can be utilized to resolve a wide selection of utilized geomorphologic difficulties, reminiscent of characterization of arid, coastal, fluvial, aeolian, glacial, karst, and tectonic landforms; average threat zoning and mitigations; petroleum exploration; and groundwater exploration and management.



Using case stories to demonstrate suggestions and strategies, this publication covers:




  • Arid environments, reminiscent of the Thar wasteland, West Texas, the Qatar Peninsula, and the lifeless Sea parts

  • Coastal coastline alterations in Kuwait

  • Coastal sector administration in India

  • Estuarine bathymetric examine of Tampa Bay, Florida

  • Fluvial landforms of the Elbe river basin, Germany

  • Subsurface coastal geomorphology and coastal morphological adjustments as a result of tsunamis within the East coast of India

  • The Himalayas, Jammu & Kashmir, Western Ghats, and Precambrian terrain of South India



The results of wide study by means of an interdisciplinary crew of contributors, Geoinformatics in utilized Geomorphology is designed for college students, researchers, and execs within the parts of geomorphology, geological engineering, geography, distant sensing, and geographic info systems.
