Abstract

Though climatic geomorphology has long been perceived as providing a realistic framework for landform analysis, only the arid , nival and glacial systems and some constructional forms on the coast are readily identified in the landscape, present and past, as climatically zonal in character. Various landforms are shaped by processes and mechanisms which, though climatically generated, vary genetically, and are active in a wide range of conventionally delineated climatic regions. They transgress arbitrary climatic boundaries
