  • Slope-Channel Coupling as a Factor in the Evolution of Mountainsby Mał Wistuba; gorzata

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis, coupling between the delivery of slope material into valley floors and river erosion is considered to be a factor in the evolution of mid-altitude, forested mountains. Analyses of slope-channel interactions were made in ten small catchments with particular emphasis on landsliding-erosion feedback. An original, new dendrogeomorphic approach... more...
