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.

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 ...

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 ...

Erodibility, tensile strength, and the "k" problem in Grand kanyon
Natalie Bursztyn, Utah State University
River profile shape is an important indicator of the geomorphic processes and history that contributed to its modern form. In the case of bedrock streams during episodes of incision, resistance of river-level ...

Human-Induced Floodplain Sedimentation in the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin: Consequences on Riparian Ecosystems
Eric Booth
The Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin (Figure 1) is a unique region in the Upper Midwest, USA, because it escaped the direct effects of continental glaciation. In contrast, surrounding areas have been ...

Fluvial geomorphology in a tank - The scientific value of physical experiments
Nikki Strong, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
The beauty and utility of experiments is to illuminate the fundamental processes that drive the evolution of natural systems. Experiments help us build intuition for processes that otherwise might be hard to ...
