Abstract

A model is tested basing on radiocarbon dated field evidence from various river systems. Conclusions on palaeoclimatic periods " humid as today " and " more humid than at present " within the Namib as well as " more arid than at present " in the hinterland are deduced from geomorphic findings. The arranged relief types themselves came into existence only as a result of climatic changes. Only locally effective palaeoclimatic events can be separated readily from regionally effective ones. More humid than at present of the last-mentioned periods happened > 34 ka BP, > 16 ka BP, and 5-1 ka BP within the Namib itself
