OK. Go to:
www.gamasutra.com (http://www.gamasutra.com)

and search after the word ROAM or quadtrees and you will find what you want.

Just to add another pointer: Lindstrom has also an interesting apporach for terrains.

Also if you search on google for documentation on Outcast (the game) you'll find something worth reading. This game uses a lot of terrain "technology".
