Description :
This paper chronicles the mapping process and presents the geomorphological basis for production of the map itself. It uses extracts from the map to illustrate the major points. The map provides a detailed classification of landforms based on morphogenic criteria and has a clear morphographic content together with some morphometric elements. The temporal evolution in regional landform patterns may be interpreted through examination of relic surfaces, river beds and beach ridges represented on the map. The map also highlights the effects of human impacts on the evolution of the river system and coastal zone.
