Abstract

Paper addresses the effects of human activity on the geomorphic processes in the Central Spanish Pyrenees. Human landscape modification was initiated there 4,000 years ago. Upper Forest Belt was burned during the Middle Ages to provide summer pasture for transhumant livestock. Hillslopes below 1,600 m were frequently burned for farming and pasturing. Consequences have included more sediment transport, more mass movement features, surface stoniness, debris flows, and altered river regimes. - (SLD)
