Abstract
There are two transects, Schefferville and Petawawa, in Canada which have been used to generate terrain surface roughness data for input into mathematical models such as the NATO Reference Mobility Model. The Schefferville data was collected during the summer of 1987 and this report deals with its analysis. The surface of the transect is predominantly a glacial moraine deposit with outcroping bedrock ridges. The analysis showed that the terrain at Schefferville was generally much rougher than Petawawa and that within the transect five separate surface roughness class types exist as opposed to three at Petawawa.
