Contents Notes
Preface -- Complex terrain -- Stereo air photos -- High resolution stereo satellite images -- Introduction -- Air photo layout format -- Regional setting satellite images -- Landslide types -- Field photos of slope failures -- Bedrock types -- Nonglacial surficial deposits -- Glacial and alpine-glacial types -- Periglacial types. A review of five major categories of lithogenetic and morphogenetic terrain types meet the complex terrain criteria: landslides, field photos of slope failures, bedrocks, nonglacial surficial deposits, glacial and alpine-glacial, and periglacial. Interpretations are based on personal knowledge and available background materials. This monograph documents a concept of complex terrains with the use of 208 illustrations, including 64 analyzed and extensively commented examples of stereo-pair air photos and 64 related satellite images.
