Cenozoic climatic change in southern Africa : the evidence from geomorphology, 1967-1996, a personal view

Auteur :
MARKER, M.E.

Description :
The contribution of geomorphic evidence to the reconstruction of the Cenozoic chronology of southern Africa is traced for the period 1967-1996. Selected examples are provided based almost entirely on the author's own contribution. The significance of karst evidence is stressed. Further evidence should be sought in ecotone sites which respond sensitively to climatic changes. However, the preservation of evidence is often fortuitous so correlation from one region to another is difficult. - (AJC)
