  • The status of ravine-like incisions in the dry valleys of the Pays de Thelle (Paris basin, France)
  • France ; Geomorphometry ; Gully erosion ; Human impact ; Ile-de-France ; Neotectonics ; Oise ; Palaeo-environment ; Sedimentology ; Valley
  • This study attempts to explain the development of the incisions in the dry valleys of the Pays de Thelle. The objectives are to locate and measure the dry valleys and the gullies, to analyse the factors favourable to their formation

  • The alluvial deposits which fill the low Tiber River Valley show a morphology characterized by wide discontinuous terraces raising up till more than 200 m above the thalweg. Moreover the inner borders of all the terraces belonging to both the valley
  • floors and the valley sides show elevation values which are recurrent and identical to elevation values of upper Pleistocene marine terraces scattered over all the world. From these results one may claim that terraces of the Tiber Valley, here discussed

  • Quaternary deposits and geomorphological evolution of the Telesina Valley (Southern Apennines)
  • In the paper the A. outlines the results of a geologic and geomorphologic survey carried out in a sector of the Calore River basin (Telesina Valley), located in the Benevento Province (Southern Appenines, Italy). The data analysis conducted allowed

  • The origin of vertisols and their relationship to acid sulfate soils in the Senegal valley
  • Africa ; Clay mineral ; Delta ; Grain size distribution ; Pedogenesis ; Semi-arid area ; Senegal ; Soil ; Valley ; Vertisol
  • The aim of this paper is to show that the sequence from the delta to the middle valley is relevant to understanding development of the soil profiles. The AA. focus on the area of transition between the 2 main soil types (Acid Sulfate Soil

  • Analysis and characteristics of pluviometric events in the Germanasca Valley (Italian Western Alps)
  • Sets of historic rainfall data (1913-2003) from four rain gauge stains in the Germanasca Valley were examined to identify the characteristic features of major, potentially dangerous rainfall events. In this study, a pluviometric event was considered

  • A new formation process for calcic pendants from Pahranagat Valley, Nevada, USA, and implication for dating Quaternary landforms
  • This study presents a new interpretation for soil pendant development from the Pahranagat Valley. This process is developed from an extensive micromorphic investigation of the stratigraphic position of laminae and their relationships to the parent

  • Deglaciation ; Fracture ; Geochronology ; Glacial valley ; Neotectonics ; Pyrénées ; Seismicity ; Slope ; Slope dynamics ; Spain
  • 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
  • scarps and their kinematics by means of the study of trough fills exposed in artificial trenches; and the temporal and causal relationships between the deglaciation of the valleys and the gravitational spreading phenomena.

  • Geomorphology ; Poland ; Topography ; Valley ; Watershed ; Wisła
  • The article offers a description of the relief and surface sediments in the Świecie Basin, a section of the valley of the lower Vistula. The valley floor is shown to feature, not only fluvial forms, but also cave-in lakes and kettleholes left behind

  • Postglacial topographic evolution of glaciated valleys : a stochastic landscape evolution model
  • British Columbia ; Canada ; Climatic change ; Cold area ; Glacial valley ; Glacier retreat ; Landscape dynamics ; Model ; Stochastic model
  • The AA. have studied the evolution of an idealized glaciated valley during the period following retreat of ice using a numerical model. The model incorporates a stochastic process to represent deep-seated landsliding, non-linear diffusion

  • Early Pliocene alpine glaciation in Antarctica : terrestrial versus tidewater glaciers in Wright Valley
  • The AA. present results of a test of the Hall et al. (1993, 1997) hypothesis that, in the early Pliocene, the alpine glaciers terminated at the edge of a Wright Valley fjord. The test consisted of re-mapping the surficial geology of the same 5
  • . (1993). Further clarification of the frontal geometries and boundary conditions of the Wright Valley alpine glaciers in the early Pliocene is a prerequisite to modeling their early Pliocene fluctuations and reconstructing paleoclimate.

  • Ice sheet erosion patterns in valley systems in northern Sweden investigated using cosmogenic nuclides
  • Glacial cycle ; Glacial erosion ; Glacial features ; Glacial valley ; Glaciation ; Ice sheet ; Isotope dating ; Quaternary ; Sweden
  • Erosion patterns associated with glaciation of trunk and hanging valley systems in northern Sweden were investigated using cosmogenic nuclide Be 10 apparent exposure ages and inferred nuclide inheritance. Although quantifying the amount of erosion

  • The article presents changes in the natural environment of the bottom of the lower Vistula valley, as resulting from its hydrotechnical development. An assessment has been made of the degree of degradation of the floodplain zone behind
  • to cascade construction of the valley floor within the floodbanks, as well as appropriate hydrotechnical measures beyond those banks, it should be possible to achieve renaturalisation of the degraded flood level. - (BJ)

  • As part of active conservation measures for the beaver in Poland, 11 animals were transferred to the Rawka Valley in the central part of the country in 1983. Over a period of nearly 20 years, the beavers spread over the entire valley and into those
