Abstract

Results of the study of the relationships between landsurface morphology and surficial geology in the forest-savanna zone of Sierra Leone. Examining the variations in gravel layer petrology within a catenary framework gave insights into the contemporary morphodynamics of the study areas, particularly the transfer, storage and removal of materials from the valley systems. Palaeoenvironmental indicators were also found that enable the landscape evolution of this region to be more fully understood
