An unique, new dendrogeomorphic strategy used to be utilized to figure out the cyclic prevalence of landsliding and erosion in the course of fresh many years. the result of dendrochronological reviews convey that the methods studied are strongly interdependent. Fluvial erosion can set off landsliding by means of undermining slope bases. Landsliding can accentuate erosion by means of providing slope fabric into valley flooring. the result of dendrochronological reports have approved a greater knowing of the comfort saw in parts the place landslides and erosion are coupled. A scheme was once established which describes the significance of coupling within the evolution of mid-mountain panorama.
