Geomorphology Vignettes

These illustrated essays have been contributed by participants in the Teaching Geomorphology in the 21st Century workshop in 2008. The vignettes are drafts that are being written and revised by the participants and are not finished products.

Flood-prone Low-lying Territories along the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast
Atanas Palazov
Over recent decades the increased frequency of natural hazards resulting from global climate change has become one of the most severe problems affecting sustainability of costal zones. In particular, low-lying ...

The Enigma of Inner Gorges in the Alps
Oliver Korup
Inner gorges form at the interface between hillslopes and river channels. Seen in cross section, they form an often near-symmetrical convex break the steepness of the hillslope profiles. This distinctive ...

Floodplain Formation and Environmental Change in the Cape Region, South Africa
Bodo Damm
Key words: Floodplain formation, fluvial geomorphology, sediment archives, environmental change, Late Holocene, Gourits River basin During the last decades significant rainfall events resulted in widespread and ...

Quantification of sediment storage and flux in an alpine basin (Reintal, Bavarian Alps, Germany)
Joachim Goetz; Martin Geilhausen
This vignette deals with the quantification of sediment storage and sediment input and exemplifies how sediment is transferred through an alpine catchment system (Reintal, Bavarian Alps). The Reintal valley is ...

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 ...

Late Quaternary Tectonics and Basin Inversion: a case from the Lower Narmada valley, India
Laxman Chamyal
The Indian Plate is currently moving northeast at 5 cm/yr (2 in/yr), while the Eurasian Plate is moving northeast at only 2 cm/yr (0.8 in/yr). This is causing the Eurasian Plate to deform, and the Indian Plate to ...

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 ...

Sediment transport (dis)connectivity in the upper Hunter catchment, NSW, Australia
Kirstie Fryirs
Sediment flux within river systems has been described as a 'jerky conveyor belt' (Ferguson, 1981). The distribution of riverine sediment stores and sinks, and the frequency with which sediment is added or ...

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 ...

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, ...
