A morphometric approach to gully analysis

, : A morphometric approach to gully analysis. Zeitschrift fur Geomorphologie 33(3): 307-322

The need for a detailed morphometric analysis of gully morphology is outlined. Analysis of the morphology of 49 valley-side gullies in the laterite terrain of the northern Rupununi savannas, Guyana, showed strong interdependence of gully morphometric properties. The cross-sectional and longitudinal variables, however, are to a large extent, orthogonal dimensions of gully systems.
