Basic landscape types

  • Adrian E. Scheidegger


We have seen in the Introduction that the most fundamental principle active in landscape genesis is the principle of antagonism. A fundamental division of landscapes is thus obtained by considering whether the activity level of the antagonistic processes is high (Figs. 2.11 to 2.13) medium (Figs. 2.21 to 2.23) or low (Figs. 2.31 to 2.33).
