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 ...
