Geomorphological units from field mapping, Irizar - Crater Lake Area, Deception Island, Antarctica

Goyanes, Gabriel; Vieira, Gonçalo

The map describes the main geomorphological features according to surface cover type on Irizar - Crater Lake Area, Deception Island, Antarctica. The map was developed to support the analysis of the backscattering signal in SAR imagery and the interpretation of Din SAR products. Geomorphological units were mapped in the field during several summer seasons since 2011 based on a topographical map with a scale of 1:25,000. A QuickBird scene was used to improve the delineation of the geomorphological units.

Detailed information about the geomorphological units can be found in the product guide.
