Transport limited landscape post glacial landscape

This preview shows page 3 - 4 out of 4 pages.

transport-limited landscape post-glacial landscape vegetation-constrained landscape Where you see a lot of bare bedrock at the surface (and this includes areas where plants have been remoted), this means that the rate of erosion (transportation) is faster than the rate of rock decay (weathering). Thus, the appearance of the landscape is crafted by this inequality between rock decay and erosion. People make landscapes unsustainable when they turn transport-limited landscapes into weathering-limited landscapes. Question 4 0 / 0.25 pts What would G.K. Gilbert call the slopes seen on this virtual hike up to the top of Piestewa Peak (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. ?
