Abstract

Hillslope deposits in northern KwaZulu-Natal are incised by gullies (dongas) which expose sequences of buried palaeosols developed within a succession of discontinuity-bounded colluvial sedimentary units. Infilled and buried palaeogully topography attests to at least four geomorphic cycles. This study presents a preliminary set of Infra Red Stimulated Luminescence (IRSL) age determinations pertaining to deposition of the succession of colluvial units infilling and burying palaeogullies at several sites of stratigraphic, geochronological and palaeoenvironmental importance in the region. Discussion of the results
