Abstract

Talus and pediment flatirons have developed as a consequence of scarp retreat and alternating slope processes in humid and arid phases. They can be used for the interpretation of geomorphic and tectonic history. As can be deduced from present-day processual activity, scarp backwearing as a result of slope dissection and base level lowering is more effective during dry phases than in the most humid phases which are characterized by smooth debris-throughput slopes. Present-day activity is also demonstrated by the high sediment yields of floods in the winter of 1987
