Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The discussion focuses on selected scientific themes around that time, namely the age of Earth, cyclicity, mountain building, crustal mobility, and fluvial and aeolian processes. In short, this paper focuses on concepts of time, so essential to the Davisian cycle of erosion; on elements of structure, which the Davisian system assumed as given; and on selected processes, which the Davisian system largely ignored. It concludes with an assessment of the emergence of a distinctively American school of geomorphology by 1900
