Thermokarst Remote Sensing

Thermokarst Remote Sensing
Title Abstract
Inventory and description of thermokarst features observed along the Umiat Corridor in July 2009.
Using a combination of aerial imagery and ~1m resolution airborne lidar (collected July, 2009), we use manual visual inspection of the two datasets to identify point locations of over 7000 thermal erosion features (thermokarst) of varying maturity. For each feature we report its x,y position, the facing direction of the feature, the local topographic setting, the geologic unit it occurs on, the relative age of the feature and the specific type of thermal erosion feature.
