Figure 1 - Visualization of the processing of land surface topography for a sample 25-km2 area in New York State. a) Digital Elevation Model--a pixelated (10 m cells) representation of land surface topography. Contour lines (in meters) have been overlain. b) Postprocessing, depiction of land surface wetness at a single point in time. Blue areas are wettest. The variability and spatial distribution of surface wetness are evident.
