Anomalously Large Gradients in Version 1 of the "GEODATA 9 SECOND" Digital Elevation Model of Australia, and their Effects on Gravimetric Terrain Corrections
MetadataShow full item record
Large gradients, when calculated by a first-difference method, have been detected in the 9 arc-second National Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of Australia released by the Australian Surveying and Land Information Group. Gradient values implied by the mean elevations in the DEM between adjacent grid cells of up to 74 have been observed, most notably in Australia?s more mountainous regions in the east. Comparisons with topographic maps indicate that these are anomalous gradients in the DEM that are not present in the actual topography. It is recommended that the first-difference method is used to test DEMs before they are used to compute terrain corrections.

Using 2D site modelling and event water level data to quantify flow behaviours at road impediment sites in low gradient valley landscapesSarukkalige, Priyantha Ranjan; Farmer, D. (2014)Broad flat valley areas and locations dominated by low gradients are readily affected by flow impediments such as roads. These impediments can lead to water detention, flow backup, lateral inundation and additional flow ...
