Abstract

Examines the effects of scarp size (height) and orientation (microclimate) by keeping constant variables such as age, lithology, and regional climate. For scarps 2m high, the degradation rate on S-facing scarps is 2 times that on N-facing scarps; for 10-m scarps, it is 5 times. Scarp morphology may be used to estimate age. -from Authors
