Abstract

The paper features some recent results on the Young Quaternary floodplain development in the middle to lower catchment of the Komadugu Yobe, a main northeast-Nigerian tributary to Lake Chad. The major aim of the study was the reconstruction of spatio-temporal changes in the fluvial response, the assessment of the system as one of the last untapped regional palaeo-ecological archives, and the chronological integration into the existing climato-stratigraphic models of the southwestern Chad Basin. A lithostratigraphical data base was created and supplemented by age determinations. The morphogenetic information was derived from palaeo-geographical and -hydrological interpretations of diverse remote sensing data
