Figure 3. Illustrations showing interrelationships between landscape elements of different ages. (A) Diagram showing that elements of the local human landscape are built upon and are thus influenced by underlying geomorphological patterns; and that geomorphological patterns are in turn built upon and influenced by regional geological patterns. The age and spatial scale of these elements both decrease up the pyramid. (B) Diagram showing the interconnections between the geological and geomorphological basis of all landscapes (bottom right of the ternary diagram) and how this influences other physical and human landscape elements and the development of cultural and ecological landscape patterns over time. (Source: both diagrams designed and drawn by Jasper Knight.)
