Warning.  What follows is somewhat informed, but I’m no geologist.  I just play one on wordpress. Understanding the basic underlying geology and associated topography plus site history helps us achieve a basic understanding of a sites ecological potential.  At the most basic level, we expect different wildlife and vegetation dynamics in a floodplain vs. a mountain ridge.  Classification of digital elevation models can be done … Continue reading Topographic Position Index and Ecological Land Type (warning completely unrefined not quite Geologic dribble– with bad maps 🙂 …)
