double planation

double planation In tropical areas, weathering below the surface at the basal weathering front is one level of planation, whereas on the land surface weathered material can be modified by wind and water processes and this provides a second level of planation. Climate and local conditions determine the relative rates of development of these two levels of planation, and they can contribute to the production of an etchplain.

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
