of drainage basins and channel networks.
To produce meaningful research cum data base a detailed and critical description of drainage and tributary net-work was transformed from a purely qualitative to a rigorous quantitative geomorphology.
Quantitative geomorphology of drainage basin and channel networks in Vent e Chow (ed.
of some watersheds in the Appalachian plateau.
The results show the feasibility of continental-scale quantitative geomorphology based on SRTM data and provide insights into the distribution of closed basins.

Coupling of quantitative geomorphology
and hydrology which is at the core of this approach is not a new concept, however, with the advent of new RS systems that operate at high resolutions and new processing capabilities in GIS the use of GIUH has become very attractive for water practitioners and hydrologic modelers.
