Experiments Open Window on Landscape Formation

This graphic shows how the combination of hill-slope erosion and precipitation-generated runoff have shaped a landscape of orderly ridges and valleys over geological time. Through experimentation involving controlling and dictating various natural processes and observing landscapes that arise, University of Oregon geologists now have a better idea of how climate change can impact landscapes. The regularity of hill and valley landforms is created as a result of a tug-of-war between erosion driven by runoff and soil movement on hillsides. Simply put, runoff processes carve valleys while soil movement on hillsides fills them.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
