Active and abandoned fluvial landforms observed on the present day surface of the Ucamara Depression (southern part of the Maraiion BasinJ have been studied, using SLAR and Landsat Imagery, and field control. The rivers showing active meander belts (Marat%%, Ucayali and Tapiche) are drained by white (silty) water from the Andes. Watersheds are drained by black water (from organic acids) streams with underfit patterns like the Samiria and Pacaya rivers. The underfit pattern is interpreted as the… CONTINUE READING
