Quantitative methods to analyze fluvial topography from digital elevation models
Abstract: This one-day short course will cover the basics of quantitative analysis and interpretation of fluvial topography using digital elevation models (DEMs). The course will use the Matlab toolbox TopoToolbox (Schwanghart and Scherler, 2014; https://topotoolbox.wordpress.com/) and ChiProfiler (Gallen and Wegmann 2017). This course will cover the basics of data input and output, analysis, and visualization. The emphasis will be on the analysis of bedrock river profiles that are common in tectonically active and inactive mountain ranges. The course will center on traditional river profile analysis based on the transformed distance coordinate, χ (Perron and Royden, 2013), and will also cover several newer techniques that use inverse methods for hypothesis testing.
