The interdisciplinary nature of geomorphometry makes it a key science for natural hazards: from land observations which can serve as ground truth to mathematical models and development of new computer software. Monitoring of Earth surface provides a growing amount of high resolution DEMs or LIDAR data which require a new kind of geomorphometric tools capable of handling, analyzing, and visualizing large quantities of data in real time. Contributions that address these issues are especially welcome, including methods for continuous monitoring at times and places where hazards occur, and the presentations on fast computational methods for near real time analysis of big elevation data.


Themes include but not limited:

  • Acquisition of high resolution elevation data
  • New algorithms and software for automated interpretation of digital elevation data
  • Modeling extreme processes on the Earth surface
  • Multi-scale automated mapping Earth surface changes
  • Working with continental-scale high resolution data
  • Simulating changes of the Earth surface relief
  • 3D and 4D dynamics of Earth surface in selected areas
