Relief typology : example of Nógrád county, N-Hungary

Geomorphology and changing environments in Central Europe

Auteurs :
HORVÁTH, G.
BREMER, H.

Description :
The A. draws a clear distinction between relief classification and typology. Relief types are units clearly delimited in space, which show characteristic features of the groups theoretically formed by classification criteria (geological conditions, morphogenesis, morphometrical parameters). For precisely distinguishing between subcategories of landforms, the A. supposes a dissection index, calculated from relative relief and valley density. 9 main types and 23 subtypes are identified in Nógrád county and briefly described.
