Abstract

The Araguás catchment has been monitored since 2004. Evolution of the badland surfaces is related to regolith moisture level and temperature, closely associated with the season and slope exposure. The dynamics of weathering and erosion processes affecting badland areas are the principal factors controlling geomorphological development, and the extreme hydrological and sedimentological responses of badlands are the main effects of such morphologies. Given these results, possible responses of badland dynamics to altered hydroclimatic regime are briefly discussed
