Mechanics of Slope Formation

  • Adrian E. Scheidegger

Abstract

Any cursory inspection of the shape of the surface of Earth shows that slopes are the basic constituents of many features of interest. We therefore start the main part of our treatise on theoretical geomorphology with a description of what is known regarding the theory of slope evolution. In this, it should be noted that the present chapter deals only with specific physical effects. As of recently, slopes have been treated as systems in analogy with whole landscapes. Thus, thermodynamic analogs and process-response models have been proposed for the explanation of slope evolution. However, such approaches will be relegated to Chapt. 5 on geomorphological system theory.
