Theory of Some Special Features

  • Adrian E. Scheidegger

Abstract

In the final Chapter (IX) of our monograph we shall discuss a series of special geomorphological features of the Earth which have no direct relation to any of the processes whose theory was discussed earlier. First, we shall consider some special aspects of badland erosion, particularly the formation of hoodoos (Sec. 9.2). Then we shall analyse geysers (Sec. 9.3) and finally conclude with a discussion of karsts and caves.
