Dominierende und tributäre Bestandteile des fluvialen Abtragungsreliefs. (Principal and tributary components in fluvial degradation relief)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The formerly proposed concepts of slope of degradation and of initial and dominating lines of erosion as also the processes which account for those phenomena are explicated. Normal and subnormal water-divides and various types of a tributary condition of area within the mechanisms of degradation are discussed. An exact subdivision of fluvial degradation reliefs into components of dominating and of tributary landforms or into corresponding processes of degradation is rendered possible with the aid of these concepts both in the field and on topographical maps. This classification differs from that which distinguishes between planed and dissected types of relief but can be carried through with greater precision. (l'A.).
