Geomorphological units from field mapping, Hurd Peninsula, Livingston Island, Antarctica

Goyanes, Gabriel; Vieira, Gonçalo

The map shows the geomorphological units of Hurd Peninsula on Livingston Island. Mapping was done with high resolution field mapping supported by the analysis of a QuickBird scene. Mapping focused on present-day geomorphological processes and on the characteristics of the surface materials. The map was produced with the objective to contribute to analysis of surface deformation products derived from remote sensing imagery and permafrost modelling within the project ESA Data User Element - GlobPermafrost (DUE-GlobPermafrost).

More information about the geomorphological mapping and units can be found in the product guide.
