oa Madoqua - Aspects of the geomorphology of the Kuiseb River, South West Africa
Geomorphological aspects of the Kuiseb river catchment in central South West Africa are analysed. The characteristics of the Kuiseb drainage are compared with other Atlantic drainage systems in terms of pattern and discharge potential. The detailed morphology of Kuiseb longitudinal and cross profiles derived from map analysis are scrutinised and relevant terrace deposits are considered in an attempt to elucidate a sequential history for the catchment.
