Geomorphology From Space: A Global Overview of Regional Landforms DLESE Reviewed Collection
This Web site provides an online version of Geomorphology from Space. The book was designed for use by the remote-sensing science and educational communities (undergraduate to graduate level) to study landforms and landscapes. The core of the book is a gallery of space imagery consisting of 237 plates, each treating a geographic region where a particular landform theme is exemplified. Commentary, photographs, locator maps, and sometimes a geologic map accompany each plate. The original was published in 1986 by NASA and edited by Nicholas M. Short, Sr. and Robert W. Blair, Jr. and is now out of print.
