  • Hierarchies and spatial scale in process geomorphology : a review
  • Earth surface processes ; Geomorphology ; Geosystem ; Model ; Scale ; Spatial scale
  • The objective of this study is to review field evidence from the geomorphological literature relevant to the spatial scale problem, and to generalize the findings by developing a series of propositions. This paper presents these propositions
  • , synthesized into a coherent framework to form the philosophical foundation for dealing with the spatial scale problem in process geomorphology.

  • The nature and geomorphological relationships of earth hummocks (Thufa) in Iceland
  • Several hundred hummocks (thufa) from a variety of geomorphological environments in north and south Iceland have been examined. The general conclusion is that thufa form within limits determined by soil grain size, soil depth, local climate, depth
  • of soil water table and geomorphological environment and they must be seen as part of the continuum of processes acting on vegetated Icelandic slopes.
