Significant Topographic Changes in the United States

Findings

The research conducted for this study has resulted in new geospatial datasets that locate and describe significant topographic surface changes in the conterminous United States. In addition, summary statistics and tabulations of changed areas have been produced for several different accounting and reporting units. These results should be useful for researchers working on land change at various scales within the United States.

Relevance for Anthropogenic Geomorphology

The product of this study is a broad-based inventory of specific topographic surface changes resulting from 20th century human geomorphic activity in the United States. Most other studies in anthropogenic geomorphology have concentrated on description and analysis of site-specific geomorphic changes caused by human activities or on comparison of the total effects of humans as geomorphic agents...
