This is a type of clastic rock landscape found in arid and semi-arid regions. Due to wind erosion, inclined clastic strata can form a landform like an array of undulating fences, and the thin rock layers become aligned like a comb. Hence, this type of landform is also called a comb-shaped landscape.
