Description :
The combination of the geomorphic parameters and the geological background enable expansion of the investigation of landscape evolution and suggest a model by detailing the evolution of 2 drainage systems in the central Negev-Nahal (wadi, dry riverbed) Ramon and Nahal Neqarot. These 2 systems have largely shaped the Makhtesh Ramon. The study uses geomorphological methods to reconstruct the main stages of the region's post-Miocene landscape evolution and to characterize in further detail the relation between tectonic events and the evolution of fluvial elements in the central Negev.
