Terrain modeling, the practice of ground-surface quantification, is an amalgam of Earth science, mathematics, engineering, and computer science. The discipline is known variously as geomorphometry (or simply morphometry), terrain analysis, and quantitative geomorphology.

It continues to grow through myriad applications to hydrology, geohazards mapping, tectonics, sea-floor and planetary. the quantitative representation of topography book Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative land-surface analysis (Pike,a; Rasemann et al., ).

Geomorphometry is an interdisciplinary field that has evolved. Geomorphometry, or geomorphometrics, is the science of quantitative land surface analysis. It gathers various mathematical, statistical and image processing techniques that can be used to quantify morphological, hydrological, ecological and other aspects of a land surface.

As with geology, geomorphology is a tangle of physics, chemistry, biology and history. It is also geometry, as the geomorphology plays out in a. Geomorphology (from Ancient Greek: γῆ, gê, "earth"; μορφή, morphḗ, "form"; and λόγος, lógos, "study") is the scientific study of the origin and evolution of topographic and bathymetric features created by physical, chemical or biological processes operating at or near the Earth's surface.

Geomorphologists seek to understand why landscapes look the way they do, to understand. Geomorphometrics deals with the quantification of the geometry, topography, and physical landforms of the Earths horizons, over time (Turner, ), and branches out from the disciplines of geomorphology, geomatics and geomorphometry.

Geomorphology has a long history as a concept and area of study, with geomorphometry being one of the oldest. CiteSeerX - Scientific documents that cite the following paper: General geomorphometry, derivatives of altitude and descriptive statistics”, Spatial analysis in geomorphology.

SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact. View More on Journal Insights.
