Time evolution of soils
Anthony Dosseto
Soils are vital for the sustainability of ecosystems and human societies (e.g. (Montgomery, 2007)), and therefore it is important to understand how their rates of production and erosion are balanced. Furthermore, ...

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 ...

A high resolution record of soil erosion from pre-agricultural times to the present: transport- and supply-limitation of erosion
S.J. Gale
One of the major drawbacks of most records of soil erosion (and particularly of records of the impact of agriculture on soil loss) is their limited time span. This makes it difficult to judge the long-term effects ...

Human Impacts on the Landscape
Roger Hooke
Humans move tremendous amounts of earth every year. They are arguably the premier geomorphic agent sculpting the surface of Earth today. In the early 1990s, people in the United States were moving about 0.8 Gt (Gt ...

Soils, relict landscapes and paleoclimate in the Atacama Desert, Chile
Jason Rech, Miami University-Oxford
The exceptionally dry Atacama Desert, adjacent to the Central Andes in northern Chile, contains many relict landscapes (landscapes formed in the past, but preserved on the present surface; Figure 1). One remarkable ...

Surficial carbonate and land surfaces of the Pamir Plateau, Tajikistan
Scott Hynek
The Pamir plateau is a prominent physiographic feature in Central Asia (Figure 1). The geomorphology of the plateau interior is a result of its geologic setting and its climate. The Pamir plateau is surrounded by ...
