Post-European settlement disturbance response of rivers in Bega catchment, South Coast, NSW, Australia
Kirstie Fryirs
Human activities have altered river systems across most of our planet. Most rivers now operate under fundamentally different conditions to those that existed prior to human disturbance. Habitat loss brought about ...

How to reconstruct past debris flows using tree rings
Michelle Bollschweiler
1. What is a debris flow and what are the associated problems? Debris flows are a type of mass movement involving rapid transport of water and saturated material (sand, mud, blocks, organic matter, ...) down steep, ...

Comparative planetology: the geomorphology of volatile cycling and catastrophic flooding
Devon Burr, University of Tennessee, The
INTRODUCTION: Three planetary bodies in our Solar System show landforms that provide evidence of liquid flowing over the surface, either at present or in the past. The surface flow of liquid is evidence for a ...

Processes and rates of channel change following disturbance by debris flows
Christine May
The Oregon Coast Range is a dynamic landscape, with steep hillslopes mantled by a thin veneer of soil. In this and other mountainous regions of the world, debris flows play a major role in routing sediment and ...

Development of Palimpsest Landscapes
Jasper Knight
In Physical Geography, a palimpsest landscape is one where, in any given region, the different landforms that make up the landscape are not of the same age, with some surface landforms being very young because they ...

Volcanic History and Cinder Cone Erosion at Newberry Volcano, Oregon
Steve Taylor
Surface landforms result from a balance of constructional and erosional processes operating at geological time scales of 102 to 105 years. The landscape evolves over time as masses of earth material are transferred ...
