Abstract

The Late Cenozoic landform development history of east Africa is explained insufficiently by the available landform genesis concepts. Late Cenozoic plain formation in East Africa was an episodic event caused by contemporaneous erosion and deposition near base level. It is therefore proposed to elaborate the etchplanation concept with fluvial dynamics. Late Cenozoic planation events in East Africa were triggered by a major base level rise due to the combined effects of eustatic sea level rise and crustal movements associated with rift valley dynamics
