Contours, the connected components of level sets, play an important role in understanding the global structure of a scalar field. In particular their nesting behavior and topology-often represented in form of a contour tree-have been used extensively for visualization and analysis. However, traditional contour trees only encode structural properties like number of contours or the nesting of contours, but little quantitative information such as volume or other statistics.
