Fire geomorphology: Fire-related erosion helps to shape our landscapes
Kerry Riley
The frequency of large wildfires has increased on all vegetated continents (Bowman et al., 2009). Wildfires can have profound influences on erosion rates, particularly in steep mountain basins. Fire-related ...

Long-term Coastline Evolution under Anthropogenic Impacts in the Bay of Varna (Bulgarian Black Sea Coast)
Atanas Palazov
The Bulgarian Black Sea coast is 412 km long (Stanchev, 2009) and embraces the territory between cape Sivriburun (the border with Romania) on the North and Rezovska River mouth (the border with Turkey) on the South ...

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 ...

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 ...
