In 1974 the authors elaborated an initial geomorphological outline of the Kuiseb River valley up-stream of Gobabeb. Subsequently other authors contributed to the geomorphology of this region and published differing results. Consequently we re-checked the area in 1978 and obtaind the following conclusions: The beginning of gramadulla formation can hardly be pinpointed (? Post-Stormberg), the depth of incision has to be explained tectonically to a large extent.
