Slope-breaks defined by high profile curvature value, and inflexion lines separating convex and concave areas are very important parameters in geomorphology but it is almost impossible to identify these continuous lines with the point operations of gradient calculation methods. However, alternative methods for their analysis can be designed. The basic idea is based on the fact that continuous areas are much easier to find in digital images (DEMs in this case) than lines. If lines of interest can be defined as boundaries between areas, their continuity is easily achieved.

If the marked ‘flat edge’ pixels areas are deleted then the remaining flat pixels are the sought peaks. Finally, flats at the DEM edges are deleted because their character cannot be decided. Local minima (pits) are found in the same way but having out-flow flat pixels propagated over flat areas and subsequently deleted. Saddle points (passes) are the hardest to identify in DEM and there are no algorithms found for locating saddle points in literature. 3). However, methods using transects reduce the two-dimensional problem to onedimension thus they tend to fail in complex situations (Toriwaki and Fukumura 1978; Chorowitz et al.

Second-order derivatives can be derived by simply applying the firstorder derivatives twice. For example, if we apply the central finitedifference scheme of the four-point method in the x direction to the horizontal grid elevation series: ~Z-2~Z-1~Zo~Z1~Z2~(bold shows the central point of interest: Z-1{Z4, Zo{Z5, Z1{Z6), then we get the following first derivative for the central point in the x direction (shown in bold): ~u~(Zo - Z-2)/2'X ~( Z1-Z-1)/2'X ~( Z2-Z0)/ 2'X~ u~, which has been shown already above.
