Abstract

No simple relationship exists between terrace heights, degree of incision and terrace deformation, and the tectonic and climatic history of the area. Allocyclic processes further complicate the interpretation of terrace formation. Six main types of terraces are recognised by the AA : glaciofluvial, morainic, fluvial, debris, lacustrine and fan terraces
