Though climatic geomorphology has long been perceived as providing a realistic framework for landform analysis, only the arid, nival and glacial systems and some constructional forms on the coast are readily identified in the landscape, present and past, as climatically zonal in character. Of course these features together account for a substantial part of the Earth's land surface at present. Nevertheless, the remaining areas have been subdivided into morphogenetic regions said to be…

From climatic to global change geomorphology: contemporary shifts in periglacial geomorphology

Abstract Periglacial geomorphology developed in the 1940s–1960s as a branch of climatic geomorphology, focusing first on Quaternary studies and palaeoenvironmental reconstructions, then on current
An Eco‐hydro‐geomorphic Perspective to Modeling the Role of Climate in Catchment Evolution
Climate is the energizer of the landscape system. Geomorphic response of a catchment integrates a wide range of climate-driven coupled biotic-abiotic processes along topographic flow paths. As such,

The Origin and Implications of Some Erosional Landforms
Etching is a mechanism of landform development involving two stages or phases. First, a regolith develops as a result of interaction between groundwaters and country rock. The surface of contact
The Geographic Cycle in Periglacial Regions as it is Related to Climatic Geomorphology
Davis, in his early writings (1899–1909) recognised, by implication, that some aspects of the geographic cycle were related to the climatic regime under which they were formed. This was a corollary
Origins and environments of pediments
Abstract Three types of pediment have been recognised. The first are cut bedrock surfaces, veneered (and hence smoothed and protected) by coarse alluvial debris. Characteristically developed in the

The existence of four different interpretations of that extraordinary assemblage of erosional and depositional land forms of eastern Washington, the “Channeled Scabland”, indicates that rigorously
Origin of the Piedmont Angle as Evidenced in South Australia
The piedmont angle is principally of structural origin: the sharp break of slope is found most commonly at lithological or structural boundaries, though rarely it has developed at fault zones.
The Geographical Cycle
All the varied forms of the lands are dependent on—or, as the mathematician would say, are functions of—three variable quantities, which may be called structure, process, and time. In the beginning,
