Abstract

This paper aims at contributing to this discussion by introducing a case in southern Franconia, shedding some new light upon relationships between cuesta relief and rock structure and resistance. A major gap in the stratigraphic record of underlying rocks of a cuesta landform in southern Franconia causes local absence of resistant cap rock. As a consequence the scarp is atypical, capped by less resistant, mainly pelitic rock. Its dip slope is identified as a planation surface, as it disconformably cuts underlying rock structures. These findings indicate that cuesta landscapes may contain prominent sculptural elements
