Abstract : The Petawawa transect terrain data file was completed with the addition of surface roughness. To accomplish this task a methodology was required that enabled the assignment of a single surface roughness class to many terrain patches. A geomorphological approach was used which fulfilled this requirement. Keywords: Surface roughness, Geomorphology, Petawawa, Aeolian sands, Alluvial sands, Canada. (JHD)
