Geomorphic controls on the slackwater deposition: Example from the Mahi River Basin, western India
Alpa Sridhar
The river basins of western India are characterized by colossal deposits of marine, fluvial and aeolian origin. A major bulk of these sediments has been deposited during the late Pleistocene under climatic and ...

The continental dunefield of Australia
Paul Hesse
Dunefields cover a large portion of the Australian continent in areas with favourable topography, climate and sand supply. The main areas of dunes lie in a diagonal band across the continent from the Mallee ...

Links between climate change, vegetation and erosion in Australia during the last 100,000 years
Anthony Dosseto
In an era where climate is changing rapidly under the influence of human activity, there is an increasing need to understand how soil and water resources will cope with these changes. While past variations in ...

Regional trends in desert dune morphology and orientation: Examples from the Australian deserts
Kathryn Fitzsimmons
Dunes are the major landforms within the desert regions of the world, owing largely to the dominance of wind over water as a geomorphic agent in the arid zone. Linear dunes, which form parallel to the resultant ...

Reconstructing the geomorphic history of a cave: a case study from Liang Bua, Indonesia
Kira Westaway
Liang Bua, a large cave situated 16 km from Ruteng in western Flores, Indonesia (Figure 1), was formed as a subterranean chamber over 600 ka. From this time to the present, a series of geomorphic events influenced ...

Climate change in the dead heart of Australia
Joshua Larsen
Despite the absence of large-scale glaciation, the Australian continent has experienced substantial environmental change throughout the Quaternary period. This is especially pronounced in central Australia, where ...

Landscape response in the California Coast Ranges to the stormy conditions of the Pleistocene to Holocene climatic transition
Antonio Garcia
Introduction: temporal scales, spatial scales, climate, and tectonics A long-standing problem in geomorphology is identifying the relative roles of climate and tectonism on landscape evolution. Here we examine the ...
