  • The formation mechanism of multiple erosional terraces which develop in the dissection process of sedimentary valley fills was investigated by laboratory experiments and computer simulations. Sequences of unpaired terraces were produced
  • on experimental fan-like deposits under conditions of constant water discharge, no base-level change, and no sediment supply. The terrace formation process was investigated by relating terrace morphology to the process of lateral channel shifting accompanied

  • Asynchronous terrace development in degrading braided channels
  • Arizona ; Climatic variation ; Fluvial processes ; Fluvial terrace ; Palaeogeography ; Palaeohydrology ; Quaternary ; United States
  • This paper describes a process of terrace development in rapidly degrading channels that produces a physically continuous terrace tread that consists of temporally nonsynchronous segments. Moreover, the AA. show that lower terraces developed
  • in the upstream portion of a degrading channel may correlate with higher terrace surfaces developed farther down channel. The results are based upon data collected and observations made in degrading braided channels in a laboratory flume and in a degrading braided

  • of fluvial terraces is developed along the Inn. These terraces, which date from the late Pleistocene to the early Holocene, are incised in the Wüum floodpain, the lower terrace. The mapping of the fluvial terraces was the first main goal of this thesis
  • . A second aim was to establish numerical ages for the terraces in question. A third goal was to correlate the phases of geomorphodynamic activity in the Inn valley, of which the fluvial terraces give evidence, with those that were dated in other catchments
  • Processes of Holocene terrace formation in a steep gravel-bed river, Nikko volcanic area, central Japan
  • Fluviatile ; Géographie de l'Asie ; Géomorphodynamique ; Holocène ; Japon ; Lit de graviers ; Lit fluvial ; Quaternaire ; Terrasse fluviatile
  • Flume experiments suggest that, in a breaded stream, terraces are formed from bars under erosional conditions. This paper examines these processes of terrace formation with the aid of field data on the Holocene terraces of the Nedori River

  • terrace and floodplain surfaces. They validate the tool in 2 locations where terrace maps were previously developed via manual digitization from lidar and extensive field mapping campaigns. The tool is also tested on 6 different types of rivers to provide
  • examples of starting selection parameters. Generally, the tool provides a high quality draft map of terrace and floodplain surfaces. The AA. find that the tool functions best in catchments where the terraces are spatially extensive, with distinct
  • differences between the terrace and floodplain. The most challenging environments for semi-automated terrace and floodplain mapping include steep catchments with dense riparian vegetation, and very small terraces. They then apply the tool to map terraces

  • No simple relationship exists between terrace heights, degree of incision and terrace deformation, and the tectonic and climatic history of the area. Allocyclic processes further complicate the interpretation of terrace formation. Six main types

  • The evolution of the course of the Meuse River was reconstructed from Liège to Maastricht. New pieces of terraces were discovered and as much information as possible on the altitudes of terrace bases were collected. For the first time
  • , the correlations of terrace pieces were done taking into account the existence of paleomeanders. That method has introduced new correlations of terraces. The capture of the Meuse downwards from Liège was modeled. Correlations of Higher Terraces were done without
