  • Andalusia ; Drainage network ; Fault ; Graben ; Gully erosion ; Model ; Spain ; Tectonics
  • The aim of this paper is to model the sensitive of drainage systems to increased regional gradient at both the river-network scale and gully-system scale. The research is applied to a semi-arid region experiencing extensional tectonic activity
  • . The main assumption made throughout the paper is that large-scale tectonic stresses cause geological blocks to tilt and this has a profound influence on the drainage systems.

  • Geomorphic assessment of active tectonics in the Acambay graben, mexican volcanic belt
  • Spatial variations of Quaternary deformation and tectonic activity of faults along the Acambay graben are assessed using geomorphic and morphometric approaches in the study of the fault-generated mountain fronts and fluvial systems. Continuing

  • The effect of the Late Cenozoic tectonics (neotectonics) and their associated morphotectonics on the Nile Delta basin since the Late Miocene are discussed. The Nile Delta site seems to be affected by basement-related tectonics as it is located
  • in a downwarped basin with numerous active normal faults. This activity can be attributed to the continuous convergence of Eurasian and African plates. However, regular geodetic measurements are necessarily required to qualify the recent movements of the Nile
  • Tectonic geomorphology at a plate boundary : a transect across Hawke Bay, New Zealand in The geomorphology of plate boundaries and active continental margins.
  • In a transect across northern Hawke Bay from the Hikurangi Trench to the Taupo volcanic Zone there are four major tectonic domains, an accretionary slope, a forearc basin, a frontal ridge, and a backarc basin. Within each of these, landform
  • characteristics can be related either directly or indirectly to tectonic processes. The whole region is geologically youthful and rates of both tectonic and consequent erosional processes are rapid.
  • Morphotectonics of Papua New Guinea in The geomorphology of plate boundaries and active continental margins.
  • Tectonic features have generally been explained by plate tectonics, with collision and subduction, but newer hypotheses are now available, including exotic terranes. Here the AA. discuss some of the tectonic and morphotectonic features of Papua New

  • The lower alluvial Pineios River has reacted to major geological controls, surface deformation and uplift movements caused by the activity of the recently mapped Pineios normal fault zone and salt tectonics in Kyllini peninsula resulting
  • in the river flow diversion from north to south at completely different open sea areas. The effects of the geological, tectonic and neotectonic activity and the impact of the human presence and influence on the lower Pineios River are presented in this paper
