Abstract

Only a few very young landforms are the results of currently operating geomorphic processes. Because the time scale for landscape evolution is much longer than the time scale for late Cenozoic climate changes, almost all landscapes are palimpsests, written over repeatedly by various combinations of climate-determined processes. However, assemblages of geomorphic processes specific to certain climatic regions cannot be translated across latitude, there are geomorphic processes that have no modern analogs. The A. presents and discusses this powerful concept of no-analog environments
