The geomorphology of valley-floor troughs illustrated from depositional sequences in the Durance valley, south-east France

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aims of this paper are to show how the widths of channel, floodplain, fan, terrace, colluvial, and glacial deposits vary along the profile and to assess the impacts of internal and external controls on these variations. The paper begins with a consideration of the types, origins, and significance of valley-floor troughs. The landform of the Durance trough are then discussed, followed by an outline of methods employed in this study. The discussion considers the results, elaborates on the various controls involved, and concludes by examining the implications of these findings
