Abstract

This paper describes the results of detailed surveys for the landscape systems (landforms, vegetation, topsoils and snow cover duration) of a nivation hollow in northern Japan and discusses their evolution in the Holocene epoch. The nivation hollow studied consists of 3 concentric zones whose landscapes and historical development are different. Landscape evolution of the hollow is reconstructed since the late glacial period. Attention is directed toward the timings of slope stabilization and vegetation establishment in the hollow
