Abstract

The Bushmanland Plateau reflects a more intricate geomorphic history than simple planation, with alternating erosional and aggradational phases. Following planation (cretaceous-Tertiary) Oligocene uplift promoted fan accumulation. Miocene incision induced regrading of fans and redirection of the Orange River. (AJC).
