On the multistage development of etch forms

Auteurs :
TWIDALE, C.R.
VIDAL ROMANI, J.R.

Description :
Although the two stage concept is useful in the interpretation of many landforms and landscapes, it is an oversimplification of reality. The subsurface weathering that results in the development of the weathering front, and is thus critical to the evolution of etch forms, exploits magmatic, thermal, tectonic and sedimentary bedrock features at various scales, and of greater or lesser antiquity. It is more accurate and appropriate to view etchforms as complex and multistage features, some of which have their origins in the distant past, as well as in more recent weathering and erosion.
