Vignettes

Vignettes are stand-alone, illustrated electronic case studies that teach about geomorphology, surface processes, and/or Quaternary history. Vignettes can be used alone or in combination with the "Key Concepts in Geomorphology", the first in a new generation of textbooks. Vignettes allow faculty to customize the learning resources they offer students to enrich and personalize student learning experiences.

Cosmogenic nuclide inventories of river sediments reveal the geomorphic character of their source areas
Alexandru T Codilean
The realization that surface processes can play a key role in moderating tectonics, and possibly climate (Molnar & England, 1990; Raymo & Ruddiman, 1992; see also Bishop 2007) has meant that there is now a ...

Quantifying rates of erosion in Namibia using cosmogenic nuclides
Alexandru T Codilean
Quantifying rates of erosion on millennial timescales is fundamental to understanding the processes that shape the Earth's surface. Cosmogenic nuclide analysis is probably the most suitable technique for this ...

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 ...

Time evolution of soils
Anthony Dosseto
Soils are vital for the sustainability of ecosystems and human societies (e.g. (Montgomery, 2007)), and therefore it is important to understand how their rates of production and erosion are balanced. Furthermore, ...
