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 ...

Landscape inversion on Earth and Mars
Devon Burr, University of Tennessee, The
PROCESS: Landscape inversion is the process whereby relative topographic elevations become inverted such that previously low-standing features become high-standing. This relief inversion occurs through induration ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
