Description :
In this paper Es is discussed for gullying and badland formation. Data from world literature have been collected and an Es-g table is presented from which interpolated values can be derived for prediction or postdiction. Applied to Mediterranean badlands the latter operation yields a minimal age between 2,700 and 40,000 years which dates badlands in this belt back eventually to Upper Pleistocene times. Therefore, this application of the Es model is offered as a contribution to the still ongoing discussion on the origin of badlands and their age.
