It’s already unlikely we’ll get a view as good as the ones collected in “Earth As Art…”

Seth Dixon, Ph.D.‘s insight:

This article and the selected gallery is based on the free e-book “Earth as Art” which I’ve mentioned here before earlier.  This particular image is fantastic for teaching about geomorphology and river systems.  Students can ‘see’ the historical layers of a meandering stream winding it’s way across the landscape.  Connecting the physical geography to human geography, analyzing the flood plains can help explain the land use and settlement patterns in these images of the Mississippi Delta and Willamette River.
