Fluvialism or diluvialism? Changing views on superfloods and landscape change

Auteur :
HUGGETT, R.J.

Description :
In a series of recent articles, the possibility was raised that, owing to the occasional impact of asteroids and comets in the oceans, lowlands on continental margins might be prone to superflooding. It was suggested that a number of landscape features, including diverted drainage drainage systems, gorges, valleys meanders and extensive sheets of gravel might have been created by these superfloods. This article explores the nature of neodiluvialism. It also discusses landscape features which can be expected to have been fashioned by diluvial, rather than by fluvial, action.
