Relationships between morphological, physiographic, and hydrologic features of La Mancha wetlands and their origin and functioning are studied. Wetlands size and density are primarily limited by drainage density, which is directly related to altitude. Broad genetic types of basins (deflation, fluvial, differential erosion, tectonic, solution basins) may be described in terms of depth and size. Wetland morphology contributes to the determination of the hydrologic regime, but large water inputs… CONTINUE READING
