Meteorological Impacts on Landform Changes


Landform evolution is mainly influenced by tectonic movement and meteorological conditions. Different landform patterns are derived from tectonic movements and erosion and accumulation in specific meteorological settings. The exogenic meteorological forces control the hydrological conditions, the regional vegetation and fauna, and the mode and efficiency of weathering processes. Preserved and changing landforms recorded and register the meteorological conditions in the past and at present, and future topological conditions can be simulated for changing meteorological parameters. The investigation of meteorological impacts on the landform can improve the understanding of periodic characteristics and processes of landform evolution and provide scientific support for the protection of the environment, for the maintenance of functioning rivers in sustainable landscape settings. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that explore meteorological impacts on landform. We are particularly interested in articles exploring this issue from new aspects and using new methodologies.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Meteorological impacts on the process of landform evolution
  • Impacts of extreme meteorological events on landform and topology
  • Numerical simulation of landform evolution
  • Meteorological control of soil formation and weathering
  • Evolution of landform erosion through time
  • Mathematical modelling and simulation of landform evolution
  • Investigating meteorological impacts on distribution of different landforms
