Abstract

We propose the tools to describe the formation of geostructures distinguished by classical landscape analysis using parameters of force geophysical fields. Тhe parameters of gravity and insolation fields were calculated from digital elevation models in GIS. The resulting formalized mathematical algorithms aimed at classifying the elementary and the higher order relief units acquire a fundamental geophysical meaning. In this case, the concept of a landscape multipattern organization is absolutely logical: choosing different structure-forming processes and physical parameters, one can implement different classifications of landscapes. Models of geosystem functioning are closely related to their structure through the boundary conditions and the relationship between the parameters. All models of the processes and structures are verified by field experimental data obtained under different environmental conditions.
