Accurate urban morphology provided by Local Climate Zones (LCZ), a universal surface classification scheme, offers opportunities for studies of urban heat risk, urban ventilation, and transport planning. In recent years, researchers have attempted to generate LCZ maps worldwide with the World Urban Database and Access Portal Tools (WUDAPT). However...

A common phenomenon associated with alluvial rivers is their meander evolution, eventually
forming cutoffs. Point bar deposits and ox-bow lakes are the products of lateral bend
migration and meander cutoff. The present study focuses on identifying the meanders of
River Manu and their cutoffs. Moreover, this study compares the temporal evolution...

River meandering and anabranching have become major problems in many large rivers that carry significant amounts of sediment worldwide. The morphodynamics of these rivers are complex due to the temporal variation of flows. However, the availability of remote sensing data and geographic information systems (GISs) provides the opportunity to analyze...
