Examine human impact on the land surface of the Earth as well as evidence of natural processes in this key that emphasizes hands-on interpretation of USGS imagery. This quiz introduces students to the concepts of Remote Sensing, and challenges them to think about the human and physical processes at work that are changing the Earth's surface.
The USGS has developed a national inventory of significant topographic changes based on seamless multitemporal elevation data and land cover data. The National Elevation Dataset (NED) and the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data form a unique pair of seamless elevation datasets that can be used to detect and analyze 20th century topographic surface changes in the United States. The need for more comprehensive information on the nature and extent of recent human geomorphic activity led t

Yet Another Calculus Text
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. The reader interested in questions of foundations should consult books such as Abraham Robinson's Non-standard Analysis or Robert Goldblatt's Lectures on the Hyperreals. Secondly, I have aime
