Tectonic Valley Landscape
Reference work entry
This is a type of valley landscape comprising features formed by river erosion along tectonic depressions (e.g., synclines, grabens) or weak zones (e.g., zones with dense joints, faults and anticline axes). The form is controlled by the tectonic structure. Typical examples are narrow and deep valleys along faults. Many natural valleys are related to faults (Fig. 13).
