In order to study the late Mesozoic and Cenozoic landscape development of the eastern part of the South German Scarplands, the AA. compiled the present data available from the literature and their own field work in the surroundings of the Franconian Alb. The integration of interdisciplinary data on different scales allows a picture of the present cuesta structures and of the long-term evolution of 5 morphotectonically different subareas. In these areas, temporal and spatial independent vertical crustal movement dominantly influenced the initiation, structural and sculptural shaping, and the geomorphology of cuesta landscape. Furthermore, changes in the base level of erosion and the evolution of the drainage systems belong to the most affecting key factors of the landscape evolution
