Morphodynamische Aktivitäts- und Stabilitätszeiten statt Pluvial- und Interpluvialzeiten

Heinrich Rohdenburg
In the course of the quaternary, all climatic zones of the world were marked by an alternation of extensive slope erosion (periods of morphodynamic activity) and soil formation (periods of morphodynamic stability). The holocene is a period of morphodynamic stability owing to overdense vegetation in areas of abundant rainfall and insufficient or too evenly distributed rainfall in areas with reduced vegetation. Thus, the ecological conditions relevant for morphodynamic activitiy are not discoverable by using the...
