Changes in vegetation cover within dune fields can play a major role in how dune fields evolve. To better understand the linkage between dune field evolution and interdune vegetation changes, we modified Werner's (Geology, 23, 1995: 1107–1110) dune field evolution model to account for the stabilizing effects of vegetation. Model results indicate that(More)
Artificial neural networks (ANN) are extremely useful for solving problems without existing algorithmic solutions or with algorithms that are too complex to implement. ANN-based models were developed to study hydrologic processes including the forecasts of watershed runoff, derivation of radar-based rainfall estimation, and development of radar-based flood(More)

Preservation and effective management of highly dynamic coastal features located in areas under development pressures requires in-depth understanding of their evolution. Modern geospatial technologies such as lidar, real time kinematic GPS, and three-dimensional GIS provide tools for efficient acquisition of high resolution data, geospatial analysis,(More)
—We propose a multidimensional framework for characterization of land surface dynamics based on time series of elevation data acquired by LiDAR technology. The proposed methods integrate line feature, surface and volume analysis. A novel, least cost path approach for coastal dune ridge and dune toe extraction is presented to support automated feature(More)
—We anticipate that multiyear lidar surveys, currently focused on vulnerable coastal areas, will soon become a common resource for monitoring and analysis of various aspects of regional terrain change. We propose raster based measures for mapping and quantification of discrete and continuous terrain changes by introducing novel concepts, such as core and(More)
Digital scans of dynamic terrains such as coastal regions are now being gathered at high spatial and temporal resolution. Although standard tools based on geographic information systems (GIS) are indispensable for analyzing geospatial data, they have limited support to display time-dependent changes in data and information such as statistical distributions(More)
