Description :
The AA. review 40 years of research in the Zin Valley Badlands in Israel to reconcile some of the conflicting results observed there and develop a perspective on the function of badlands as model landscapes. While the data collected in the Zin Valley clearly confirm that spatial and temporal patterns of geomorphic processes and their interaction with topography and surface properties have to be understood, the AA. still conclude that the process of realizing complexity in the simple badlands has a model function both for our understanding as well as perspective on all landscape systems.
