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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The role of rock fracture in erosion
Douglas Burbank
Before rock can be eroded, intact bedrock must be broken into smaller pieces that can be detached from the landscape. This detachment process can occur at the scale of grains, thereby promoting grain-by-grain ...
