Carbon dioxide (CO2) transfer from inland waters to the atmosphere, known as CO2 evasion, is a component of the global carbon cycle. Global estimates of CO2 evasion have been hampered, however, by the lack of a framework for estimating the inland water surface area and gas transfer velocity and by the absence of a global CO2 database. Here we report(More)
The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) produced near-global 1 and 3 DEMs. The cartographically-derived National Elevation Dataset (NED) provides a mechanism to assess SRTM quality. We compared 12 geomorphometric parameters from SRTM to NED for about 500,000 sample areas over the continental United States. For basic parameters like average elevation or(More)
Digital elevation models (DEMs) cover a wide range of scales, and allow statisticalanalysis of geomorphometric parameters. At global or continental scale, DEMs covering rectangular quadrangles can be considered random samples. Average quadrangle values can be compared at different DEM scales, and for different physiographic provinces. Three independent(More)
This paper describes a Java application, Target 3D, that creates an interactive VRML model to visualize real terrain configurations. The application requires an input elevation grid and a texture to drape on the elevation framework, which can be provided by the freeware MICRODEM program from a wide variety of grid, raster, and vector map data.
