The use of duricrusts and topographic relationships in geomorphological correlation : conclusions based in Australian experience

Auteurs :
TWIDALE, C.R.
BOURNE, J.A.

Description :
Duricrusted surfaces provide morphostratigraphic markers which are useful in preliminary extrapolation and correlation at the local and regional scales. Particular reference is made to ferruginous and siliceous cappings. Problems broached include type of landscape development, the relation of surface and duricrusts, and the temporal equivalence of duricrust facies. The roles of duricrusts in relief inversion, surface preservation and climatic interpretation are also mentioned.
