Abstract

Structural landform dynamics are investigated in the central parts of the Colorado Plateau, a semiarid area of relatively uniform climatic conditions. The influence of the controlling factors is statistically analyzed and the causal links between the system variables are inquired into. It is shown that some controlling factors, such as the lithology and structure of the rocks involved, the direction of the dip, or the mode of production and transport of debris, have been paid too little attention to in some theoretical models
