  • The origin of certain wide valleys in the Canary Islands
  • Canary Islands ; Geomorphology ; Inverted relief ; Lava flow ; Model ; Valley ; Volcanism
  • The present work addresses a long-term controversy concerning the origin of Orotava Valley, one of the most peculiar valleys in the Island of Tenerife. Analysis of the key features of Orotava Valley leads to formulation of an hypothesis which could
  • be applicable to numerous volcanic areas. Such valleys are developed as volcanic valleys undergo lateral expansion due to repeated alternations of processes: initial erosion of the gorges by streams, the burial of the gorges by lava flows, and the inversion
  • of the relief by erosion at the base of valley walls.
  • The post to late glacial valley reconstruction on the Haramosh north side (Mani, Baska and Phuparash valleys)
  • Asia ; Glacial features ; Glacial valley ; Karokoram ; Lateral moraine ; Palaeo-environment ; Postglacial
  • The history of the landscape of the Haramosh valley is linked with the former glaciation history of the Indus Valley. The extent of the former glaciers Mani, Baska and Phuparash according to their glacio-geomorphic position, their snow line
  • depression and relative age classification, using the method of Kuhle, is reported in this article. A high glacial ice filling of the Haramosh valley and glacial erosion of the flat top of the Darchan ridge as an intermediate valley head is strongly probable.
  • A rational explanation of cross-profile morphology for glacial valleys and of glacial valley development
  • The purpose of this paper is, first to present an explanation of the cross-profile morphology based on the physical process of glacier flow and second to interpret development of the glacial valley cross-profile.

  • Oenanthe silaifolia has been re-discovered in Belgium in July 1977, in a hay-field at Reninge (valley of the Ijzer).
  • A rational explanation of cross-profile morphology for glacial valleys and of glacial valley development : a further note
  • The AA. discovered a misinterpretation in their original paper entitled : a rational explanation of cross-profile morphology for glacial valleys and of glacial valley development in earth surface processes and landforms, vol. 13, No 8, p. 707-716
  • Outlines of the late Quaternary history of the Drentsche Aa Valley (Drente, The Neteherlands)
  • An outline is given of the geomorphology and Late Quaternary history of the Drentsche Aa valley. The valley sediments are subdivided in fluvial, slope and aeolian sediments on lithological arguments. The vertical succession of the river valley
  • sediments demonstrates a decreasing fluvial activity during the Weichselian. Tentatively four erosion phases are distinguished in the valley system.
  • Variability of the morphometric characteristics of valley networks caused by variations in a scale
  • Drainage network ; Fractals ; Geomorphometry ; Spatial scale ; Valley
  • This article indicates the quantitative tools, with assistance of which it is possible to characterize the morphology (shape) of the valley network and determine their variability caused by the scale change. The monitored morphometric
  • characteristics (quantitative tools) have been applied to the paradigmatic examples of the schematic valley networks and have been analyzed in three scales. In order to analyze the valley networks, the most suitable are “valley junction angles” and “homogeneity
  • of various order valleys”, where the relevant values dropped while increasing the scale, but the normal (Gauss) distribution of values was preserved. - (EN)
  • Duricrust development and valley evolution: process-landform links in the Kalahari
  • Botswana ; Duricrust ; Fluvial erosion ; Groundwater ; Namibia ; Palaeo-environment ; Stratigraphy ; Valley ; Weathering
  • This paper aims to explore the process-landform relationships and potential genetic links between duricrust formation and Kalahari valley development, and hence assess the possible influence and implications of groundwater weathering and erosion
  • upon duricrusts. This is achieved by consideration of relationships between valleys and duricrusts at a variety of scales (ranging between microscale to valley scale) from three mekgacha systems within the Kalahari: the Rooibrak and Letlhakeng valleys
  • in Botswana and the Auob Valley in Namibia.
  • Problems in automated recognition of valley features from digital elevation models and a new method toward their resolution
  • Drainage network ; Greece ; Hydrology ; Landslide ; Model ; Numerical model ; Peloponnesus ; Valley
  • In this paper a new method for recognizing valley bottoms is presented. This is based on two improvements of Carroll's (1983) method, and produces a network that reflects the topography well. The network is used to locate valley heads. Once located
  • , the valley heads are delineated using criteria suggested by geomorphologists and hydrologists. The resultant valley heads are generally well recognized although two problems are evident : a) there are a number of commission errors; and b) the valley heads
  • Automated recognition of valley heads from digital elevation models
  • An automated technique for recognizing valley heads from digital elevation models is presented. The technique has been developed for valley head recognition because valley heads are known locations of geomorphological activity and because areal
  • features have been largely ignored in the automated landform recognition literature. The problem of valley head recognition is divided into valley head location and valley head delineation, and the technique is developed using a DEM representing a simple
  • Valleys and river benches from the viewpoint of morphotectonics
  • Concept ; Fluvial processes ; Hydrogeology ; Valley
  • The geomorphological concepts on the formation of valleys and river benches applied until now have been based upon the viewpoints of dynamic and climatic geomorphology. This exogenous interpretation should be abandoned and an endogenous concept
