Abstract

The AA. reconstruct the Holocene river history of the Erhjen River by correlating river terraces aided by 28 radiocarbon dates at multiple sites. They conclude that genesis of river terraces is a result of complex interaction between factors that initiate terrace surfaces (mainly climate-driven) and factors that contribute to subsequent abandonment of the surfaces by channel incision (including all base level, tectonic, and climatic factors)
