Abstract

In this study, a tectonic model of landscape evolution recently developed for Uganda, was tested by detailed study of the weathered mantle. The study involved an analysis of weathered-mantle stratigraphy, texture, mineralogy and elemental geochemistry, and was conducted in 2 catchments of central and southwestern Uganda which feature contrasting geomorphic processes (deep weathering and stripping) and different (post mid-Miocene) evolutionary histories
