Griffith Taylor and the SE Australian Highlands : issues of data sources and testability in interpretations of long-term drainage history and landscape evolution

Auteur :
BISHOP, P.

Description :
The A. summarises briefly Griffith Taylor's reconstruction of the drainage history of SE Australia, and how it came to be incorporated into the early plate tectonic interpretations of the evolution of Tasman-margin landscapes. He then uses the existence of viewpoints that do not agree with Taylor's interpretation as a springboard for a consideration of the conceptual methodological problems associated with reconstructing long-term landscape evolution, and specifically the history of denudational terrains.
