Abstract : The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential of radar imagery for use in geomorphic analysis, using southeastern Panama, including Route 17, and northwestern Colombia as the test site. More specifically, radar-derived morphometric data will be compared to morphometric data from 1:50,000 maps of Route 17 and from the limited aerial photography of eastern Panama. The consistency of radar-derived morphometric data will be tested at different depression angles and look-directions. (Author)
