  • Rates of surface processes on slopes, slope retreat and denudation: a comment and a reply
  • Rates of surface processes on slopes, slope retreat and denudation: a reply
  • A comparison between the Davisian scheme and landform development by concurrent tectonics and denudation
  • by concurrent tectonics and denudation (H. Ohmori, 1978| T. Yoshikawa, 1985). A quantitative evaluation is made of the characteristics of topographic features described by Davis from the viewpoint of landform development by concurrent tectonics and denudation.
  • Denudation, isostasy and landscape evolution
  • The aims of this paper are to demonstrate how the concept of isostaxy has been misunderstood in relation to landscape evolution, to outline a model of isostasy that is applicable to large-scale, long-term denudational unloading, and briefly
  • Chemical denudation on a magnesian limestone hillslope, field evidence and implications for modelling
  • The pattern of relative denudation at the soil-bedrock interface over a wooded Magnesian Limestone hillslope was investigated using microweight loss bedrock tablets. The resulting pattern of weight loss after emplacement for one year indicated
  • a consistent upslope increase in solutional denudation. Dye tracing and gypsum sphere weight loss results showed that water movement over the slope was by vertical percolation and not by throughflow. Comparison with a similar study suggests that a general soil
  • chemistry based model of hillslope solutional denudation can be proposed.
  • Some uncertainties in the derivation of rates of denudation from thermochronologic data
  • Low-temperature thermochronology, such as that provided by apatite fission-track analysis, provides a valuable means of establishing the timing of major denudational events and associated rates of denudation over geological time-scales of 106-108 Ma
  • . Care must be taken, however, in deriving denudation rates from the crustal cooling histories documented by thermochronologic techniques, especially in rapidly eroding terrains, since, in such cases, apparent denudation rates derived from
  • thermochronologic data will usually overestimate true rates if the advective effect of denudation is not included.
  • Changes in the hypsometric curve through mountain building resulting from concurrent tectonics and denudation
  • This paper simulates how the shapes of the hypsometric curves change through mountain building resulting from concurrent tectonics and denudation. Next, it discusses the relationship of the hypsometric curve to the stage of a geomorphic cycle
  • Autogenic and allogenic denudation in carbonate karst by the multiple basin method : an example from Svartisen, north Norway
  • When choosing small basins that are subsets of each other, assumptions of hydrologic and lithologic uniformity may be satisfied. Then the autogenic and allogenic components of the denudation may be calculated by a linear model of uniform mixing
  • Denudation surfaces of a shield area in south Sweden
  • Two sets of denudation surfaces have been delimited, the exhumed and the epigene ones. The sub-Cambrian peneplain is still of importance for the highest surface, and tilted tectonic blocks can be defined with reference to it. Its limit to the south
  • Slope failure and denudation in the western Himalaya
  • This paper assesses denudation by mass-movement in the western Himalaya and relates the mobilization of debris by mass movement to further removal by glacial and fluvial processes.
  • Temporal cycles of karst denudation in northwest Georgia, U.S.A.
  • Time patterns of karst denudation in northwest Georgia (U.S.A.) were investigated at three spring sites for 12 months and at five stream sites for 10 years. Rainfall was evenly distributed and showed no significant seasonality. At the springs
  • , as well as the streams, water hardness was largely controlled by discharge. Time cycles in available water are the key controlling factor of denudation, and amounts of available soil CO2 may not be as important in the temporal patterns of karst downwearing
  • The paper presents a denuded cave in the area of Podbojev laz, on the NW side of the Rakov Škocjan. The morphological properties of several sections of the denuded cave and its surroundings are described. It developed from an epiphreatic cave system
  • which used to function as an outflow cave system from the Rak valley. Morphometrical analysis of the slopes show that the denuded cave was developed in stages. As the surrounding surface is not flattened, the cave roof has been denuded gradually. - (L'A.).
  • Solute budgets and denudation rate estimates for a mid-wales catchment
  • . The solute budgets are affected by geochemical processes occurring within the catchment. A solutional denudation rate estimate of 2.9B is derived from the silicon budget and a denudation rate of 3.5 B from the loss of suspended sediment and bedload from
  • Hillslopes solute sources and solutional denudation on a Magnesian Limestone hillslope
  • The need for parallel studies on denudation chronology and present-day processes
  • A Dunantuli-kozéphegység sasbérc felszinei és a denudacios kronologia. (The horsts of the Transdanubian Mountains and denudation chronology)
  • Slope runoff and denudation in the Rupununi Savanna, Guyana
  • Shoulder uplift of the Western Ghats passive margin, India : a denudational model
  • The paper presents a denudational rift flank uplift model of the Western Ghats of Karnataka. The Cenozoic denudation of the Deccan plateau was constrained by relative dating of regional planation surface levels, in combination with preliminary
  • apatite fission track results. The denudational history of the Western Ghats escarpment coastal foreland was constrained both by onshore fission track and offshore sediment data. Methods are briefly described. Results were used as reference data
  • Character and rate of denudation at platformian plains are discussed. Geological and geomorphological methods are used to estimate the annual denudation rate which varied from 0,001 to 0,01 mm during Middle Miocene Quaternary. The erosion rate
  • within the limits of erosional surfaces (which form low topographic levels) is about one order of magnitude higher and amounts to 0,01 to 0,02 mm per year. A scheme of denudation rate is compiled, erosional gaps within formations being taken into account
  • . Among the denudation factors most active are processes of marine abrasion. Stadial character of the denudation processes action is emphasized, and a possibility is considered to use topographic levels for morphostructural studies. (L'Ed.).
  • Tropical karst and chemical denudation of Western Cuba
  • basin of the Cuyaguateje river) and an isolated limestone massif of the Pan de Guajaibon. The values of contemporary chemical denudation being the coefficient of geomorphological activity, have been calculated in several catchment basins.
