water is an outstanding force under the ‘process’ heading, the ramifications of slope wash, stream flow, stream patterns, and other aspects of drainage are sosignificant that generally the topic or drainage is considered a basic element inlandform analysis.
An inclined surface, the gradient of which is determined by the amount of the inclination from the horizontal, and the length of which is determined by theinclined distance between its crest and its foot. A slope may be concave, straight orconvex when seen in profile.
Usually, most of the topographic details have been produced during thecurrent cycle of erosion, but there may exist within an area remnants of featuresproduced during prior cycles, and, although thee are many individual landformswhich can be said to be the product of some single geomorphic process. Horberg(1952) classified landforms into five major categories:
exhumed or resurrected landscapes
Simple landscapes are the product of a single dominant geomorphic process,
Compound landscapes are those in which two or more geomorphic processeshave played major roles in the development of the existing topography.
Monocyclic landscapes have been produced during more than one cycle of erosion. Monocyclic landscapes are less common than multicyclic and are ingeneral restricted to such newly created land surfaces as a recently upliftedportion of the ocean floor, the surface of a volcanic cone, lava plain orplateau, or areas buried beneath a cover of Pleistocene glacial deposits.
