Abstract

The western part of the Makgadikgadi basin in northern Bostwana displays a variety of lacustrine, fluvial and aeolian landforms in close juxtaposition. The area is divided into a number of distinct geomorphological units, whose form, relationships and evolution are described. A sequence of stages in the evolution of the landscape is put forward, and a chronology suggested on the basis of twenty new C dates on samples from widely separated parts of the whole basin. Correlation with adjacent parts of southern Africa is examined, and some palaeoclimatic inferences drawn.
