Etymology. The term "speculative biology" originates from Dougal Dixon, a Scottish geologist and author of books on palaeontology and speculative is the term he uses to refer to the topics of several of his books: After Man: A Zoology of the Future (), The New Dinosaurs: An Alternative Evolution (), Man After Man: An Anthropology of the Future (), and The Future is Wild. Slope may be described as function of structure, process, stage and tectonics. The structure may be included under the original slope form. The effects of climate, hydrology, glaciation, vegetation, soils, biological factors and probably even tectonics may be included under process. The stage or the time factor in monocyclic or multicyclic. China. Princeton Asia (Beijing) Consulting Co., Ltd. Unit , NUO Centre 2A Jiangtai Road, Chaoyang District Beijing , P.R.

Evolution of slopes on artificial landforms--Blaenavon, U.K. / by Martin J. Haigh - Details - Trove. Davis had divided the evolution of landforms into three distinct stages: 1.

Youthful Stage 2. Mature Stage 3. Old Stage. Youthful Stage: By this time, if rainfall occurs, the rain water will start flowing along the natural slope towards the sea in the form of alls, gullies, streams and ultimately rivers.

A landform is a natural or artificial feature of the solid surface of the Earth or other planetary rms together make up a given terrain, and their arrangement in the landscape is known as l landforms include hills, mountains, plateaus, canyons, and valleys, as well as shoreline features such as bays, peninsulas, and seas, [citation needed] including submerged.

Most of the erosional landforms made by running water are associated with vigorous and youthful rivers flowing along gradients.

With time, stream channels over steep gradients turn gentler due to continued erosion, and as a consequence, lose their velocity, facilitating active deposition. Geomorphology is the science of landforms, with an emphasis on their origin, evolution, form, and distribution across the physical landscape.

Understanding geomorphology is therefore essential to understanding one of the most popular divisions of geography. 1 Department of Geography, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and they called this process the production of artificial slopes, on its evolution.

These are sheet, rill and gully erosion. The evolution of talus‐pediment sequences (talus flatirons) in arid areas was often linked to climatic cycles, although the physical processes that may account for such a link remain obscure.

Our approach is to integrate field measurements, remote sensing of rainfall and modeling to link between storm frequency, runoff, erosion and sediment.

The belief in the sequential development of landforms, involving the progressive and irreversible evolution of almost every facet of landscape geometry, in sympathy with the reduction of relief, including valley-side slopes and drainage systems, is in accord with closed system thinking.

Although "complications of the geo­. Convex slope: Indicating waxing erosion intensity and a waxing development of landforms or ‘Aufsteigende Entwickelung.

Concave slope: Indicating waning erosion intensity and a waning development of landforms or ‘Absteigende Entwickelung.’ Penck’s Cycle of Erosion: Refer, to Fig.

The cycle has several stages. Stage 1. Published Canons of Landscape Evolution () in which he discussed the roles of process, time, and structure in the formation of landscapes and evlolution of slopes. Complex history of Landscapes Rarely does a landscape represent a a single process, event, or progressive uninterrupted evolution of events, as inferred by Davis.

Walther Penck (30 August – 29 September ) was a geologist and geomorphologist known for his theories on landscape evolution. Penck is noted for criticizing key elements of the Davisian cycle of erosion, concluding that the process of uplift and denudation occur simultaneously, at gradual and continuous rates.

Penck's idea of parallel slope retreat led to revisions of Davis's cycle. At Perth Amboy, slopes are initiated by channel degradation and maintained by runoff and by creep induced through frost heaving. Runoff or creep may form convex divides, and both parallel and declining slope retreat are important in the evolution of stream-carved topography.

Evolution is change in the heritable characteristics of biological populations over successive generations.

These characteristics are the expressions of genes that are passed on from parent to offspring during ent characteristics tend to exist within any given population as a result of mutation, genetic recombination and other sources of genetic variation.

Physical Geography Made Simple focuses on developments in physical geography, including advancements in the study of landforms, weather, climate, water, soils, plants, and animals.

The book first offers information on rocks and relief, weathering, slopes, and rivers and drainage basins. Darwin dedicated a large portion of his book, On the Origin of Species, to identifying patterns in nature that were consistent with evolution, and since Darwin, our understanding has become clearer and broader.

The video below summarizes the major types of evidence supporting evolution; you will read more details in the pages that follow. A landform is a natural or artificial formation of the solid surface of Earth.

There are various types of landforms, each having a different structure and effects on the life of living organisms. This quiz will demonstrate the students' understanding of the landforms unit. Read each question carefully and answer the best choice that is correct.

Model classification of slope form •A. Four unit model It was proposed by A. Wood in •a) The waxing slope is the curve over edge of the horizontal surface of the hilltop.

It is also called the convex slope or upper wash slope. •b) The free face A steep slope or part of a slope formed of bare rock. •c) The constant slope is a slope with a uniform angle that did not alter as.

Very narrow, deep valleys of similar appearance are. Geomorphology (from Ancient Greek: γῆ, gê, "earth"; μορφή, morphḗ, "form"; and λόγος, lógos, "study") is the scientific study of the origin and evolution of topographic and bathymetric features created by physical, chemical or biological processes operating at or near the Earth's surface.

Geomorphologists seek to understand why landscapes look the way they do, to understand. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library. Forces inside and outside the earth can change the shape of the earth's surface.

We have already seen the effects of geomorphic forces in our previous Geography notes. Endogenic forces and exogenic forces can create a lot of landforms. A landform is a natural feature of the solid surface of the Earth.

Examples include Mountains, Plateaus, and Plains. Modern images of the United Arab Emirates, particularly the bustling cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, usually feature gravity-defying skyscrapers and artificial landforms, but the country is still. Geography occupies a pivotal position in the understanding and interpretation of social, of soils, rock type, slopes, vegetation type, landuse.

River channel processes and landforms drainage patterns and their evolution; genetic, generic. Beginning with the evolution of our universe, this book chronicles the origins of life on Earth and subsequent patterns of evolution and extinction, as evidenced by the fossil and geologic records.

Grenada is volcanic in origin, with a ridge of mountains running north and south—the steeper slopes to the west and a more gradual incline to the east and southeast. The highest point is Mount St. Catherine (2, feet [ metres]) in the northern part of the interior. The landscape is scenic, with fairly deep steep-sided valleys and about.

While the evolution of soil-mantled, convex-upward hillslopes in uniform lithology is reasonably well understood, the influence of heterogeneous lithology and geologic structure on hillslope form and evolution has yet to be properly addressed.

Landscapes developed in layered sedimentary rocks feature sharp-edged landforms such as mesas and. All landforms are composed of rocks or their weathered by products. Three main types of rocks can be identified on the Earth's surface: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. Slopes formed on cohesive materials like clay and silt have different set of processes involved in their mass wasting.

The ocean basins extend from the edges of the continents down steep slopes to the ocean floor and into deep trenches.

Continents. The oldest continental rocks are billions of years old, so the continents have had a lot of time for things to happen to them.
