So, for clarity, let’s talk a little more about McNab indices.  Field-derived McNab indices are a measure of average angle from the observer to the horizon (mesoscale landform index), or from the observer to another field person a set distance away, … Continue reading Landscape Position and McNab Indices (cont.)

What is a McNab index?  Well there are two kinds, the minor landforms and mesoscale landforms that are field-measured topographic position or terrain … Continue reading Landscape Position and McNab Indices
