Geomorphology From Space DLESE Reviewed Collection
Geomorphology from Space is an out-of-print 1986 NASA publication designed for use by the remote sensing, science, and educational communities to study landforms and landscapes. Users can access a gallery of images consisting of 237 plates arranged by particular types of landforms such as tectonic, volcanic, planetary, and others. Photographs, locator maps, and sometimes a geologic map accompany the plates, along with written discussions of the forces and underlying geologic properties that resulted in the formation of the landforms in question.
