Abstract

The behaviour of escarpments in various structural and topographic settings determines style and rate of landscape development and of the piedmont landform assemblage. The various models are examined with relevance to the evolution of the landscapes of Australia and southern Africa. An assessment is offered of rates of scarp retreat and stability under differing conditions. - (AJC)
