AbstractMorphometry is a discipline extensively applied in the landscape analysis of regions affected by active tectonics. Recently, the specific techniques of morphometry have been used for studying the surficial expression of other phenomena such as volcanism and mass movements. We are applying diverse landscape analysis techniques for analyzing the relief morphology in the central region of Costa Rica, a confluence of active tectonics, volcanism and landsliding. The objectives of our project are to better understand the reliability of the morphometry analysis techniques in the mentioned geographical setting, and to provide new information for improving the geological knowledge of the study area. Our preliminary results indicate that landscape analysis techniques have proven be useful in the study area for identifying active tectonic structures and large landslides; and for assisting in geological mapping and for volcanism analysis.
