Text (figures and tables)
A combination of conventional surveying and non-invasive techniques have been applied to characterising the geomorphology, soils and shallow substrates of a typical small catchment in the Southern Uplands in Scotland, in three dimensions. Integration of geospatial, geophysical and geotechnical data, in the resulting digital 3D model, enable the nature and extent of individual components of the landscape to be measured and their relationships at depth to interpreted and visualised. This type of baseline data is fundamental to understanding past, and monitoring and measuring the impacts of future environmental changes in environmentally sensitive areas.
