Response to Prominence??

 

In general, prominence is a non-arbitrary measure of a mountain with respect to the surrounding terrain. Prominence is the measure of Peak A's elevation minus the elevation of the lowest saddle connecting Peak A to a higher peak (Peak B).

This concept is discussed in detail on links associated with the county highpointers website at http://www.cohp.org/prominence/index.htm
