Variations climatiques quaternaires et morphogenèse dans le sud du levant espagnol

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



During quaternary glacial ages in the Spanish Southern East, pediments (glacis) and fluvial terraces levels connected with old slopes including well regulated ones were shaped. Coldings did not print typical marks of the periglacial system on them. In fact, the amplitude of the climatic changes as well thermic as pluvial was modest. However, gelifraction worked down to lower altitudes owing to winter coolings. This gelifraction became easier because the vegetation was a clear steppe in connection with cooling and decreasing rainfalls. This pluviometric change is opposite to Pluvial ages that would have been noticed in Northern Africa. (l'A.).
