Complex Terrain Mapping: Integrated Use of Stereo Air Photos by Lambert Rivard, Carla Hehner-Rivard PDF

By Lambert Rivard, Carla Hehner-Rivard

A assessment of 5 significant different types of lithogenetic and morphogenetic terrain kinds meet the advanced terrain standards: landslides, box images of slope disasters, bedrocks, nonglacial surficial deposits, glacial and alpine-glacial, and periglacial. Interpretations are in accordance with own wisdom and on hand heritage fabrics. This monograph records an idea of advanced terrains with using 208 illustrations, together with sixty four analyzed and widely commented examples of stereo-pair air photographs and sixty four comparable satellite tv for pc images.

Structure Haiti Island is part of the Greater Antilles Deformed Belt, of folded Mesozoic and Cenozoic sedimentary rocks. The belt is along the strike-slip boundary of the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates. Physiography The Example area is located 10 km inland from the northwest coast in a 7 km wide fault-bounded trough, not clearly resolved in the image, that separates the northwest peninsula from the northern coast eastward.

The imaged portions of three mapped major strike-slip faults have been drawn.

Bauxite quarries are visible along the south side of the sequence. The unit is crossed by northeast and northwest striking faults, the westerly one being a strike-slip fault. 3—These occurrences at 250–350 m elevation are downfaulted and dissected interbedded weak Triassic argillaceous limestone and marl. 4—At an average 450 m elevation this unit consists of well interbedded Upper Cretaceous reef limestones, argillaceous limestone and marl. 5—This 700 m elevation 4 km long faulted ridge of Lower Cretaceous interbeds of marly argillaceous and thick limestones is a reef-flank unit of Unit 2 lying above the Jurassic and Triassic lowlands.
