  • North American periglacial geomorphology as a branch of geocryology : a brief history
  • After a brief review of the disciplinary nature of geocryology and periglacial geomorphology, this paper discusses how and why North American periglacial geomorphology has shifted toward the discipline of geocryology.

  • Cellular modelling in fluvial geomorphology
  • This paper outlines the principles of cellular modelling in fluvial geomorphology and addresses issues of model formulation and validation in the context of numerical modelling more generally. In doing so it seeks to highlight the prospects

  • Abruzzi ; Geomorphology ; Italy ; Palaeo-environment ; Pleistocene ; Quaternary ; Sedimentary basin ; Stratigraphy ; Volcanism
  • This paper presents the results of a geological and geomorphological study carried out in the central-western area of the Carsoli basin (AQ) during the survey of the Geomorphological Sheet 367 Tagliacozzo. The existence of a local Middle Pleistocene

  • A tale of two scales, or the two geomorphologies
  • Erosion rate ; Geochronology ; Geomorphology ; History of geography ; Methodology ; Modelling ; Numerical model ; Scale ; Twentieth Century
  • Since the 1960s the analysis of small-scale surface processes has been the dominant approach in geomorphology. It has recently been acknowledged that small-scale, surface process geomorphology alone is unable to provide an understanding of long-term
  • that are revolutionizing landscape evolution studies. Two distinct communities of researchers have emerged concerned with different scales of landform analysis, but the progress of geomorphology will be best served by greater interaction between them.

  • Dams and geomorphology : research progress and future directions
  • Dams and geomorphology. Special issue
  • This paper reviews the development of geomorphological knowledge of channel changes below dams in 3 phases : channel dynamics, the role of riparian vegetation, and channel change as the driver of ecological regime or steady-state models should

  • Geomorphology and American dams : the scientific, social, and economic context
  • Dams and geomorphology. Special issue
  • This paper emphasizes the downstream effects of dams. In the scientific context, present research is embedded in a history of geomorphology in government service, with indistinct boundaries between basic and applied research. The federal policy
  • that most strongly influences present geomorphological investigations connected with dams is related to habitat for endangered species, because the biological aspects of ecosystems are directly dependent on the substrate formed by the sediments and landforms

  • Mapping the spatial distribution of geomorphological processes in the Okstindan area of northern Norway, using Geomorphic Process Units as derived from remote sensing and ground survey
  • Aerial photography ; Digital elevation model ; Geomorphological mapping ; LANDSAT ; Mountain ; Norway ; Periglacial features ; Remote sensing ; Research technique ; Solifluction ; Spatial distribution ; Subarctic zone
  • The delineation of Geomorphic Process Units (GPUs) aims to quantify past, current and future geomorphological processes and the sediment flux associated with them. Five GPUs have been identified for the Okstindan area of northern Norway
  • by glacial and periglacial processes. The GPUs are focussed upon periglacial and colluvial processes. They have been applied to a test site in order to illustrate their potential for mapping the spatial distribution of geomorphological processes.

  • Geomorphology and geochronology of sackung features (uphill-facing scarps) in the Central Spanish Pyrenees
  • This paper analyses the sackung features found in 2 neighbouring glacial valleys of the central Spanish Pyrenees. The main aspects addressed in this work are : the geomorphology of the sackung-type features; the chronology of the uphill-facing

  • The AA. report the results of glacial geomorphological mapping of the Strait of Magellan and Bahía Inútil. The aims are to determine the pattern and process of deglaciation during the last glacial-interglacial transition and to provide a firm
  • geomorphological basis for the interpretation of radiocarbon, cosmogenic isotope and amino acid dates for the timing of deglaciation. The mapping shows that it is possible to make a clear weathering and morphological distinction between last glaciation and older
