Document title

The enigma of survival problems posed by very old paleosurfaces

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Surfaces and forms that closely simulate their earliest Cenozoic and Mesozoic precursors are preserved in many parts of the world. It is suggested that, in some circumstances, changes over time have been so slow that the essential character of the form persists. Morphology and drainage remain intact, though frequently relief amplitude has been increased. Examples of such preservation are cited and problems related to the dating and survival of epigene-etch surfaces are discussed
