Summary

In glaciated British Columbia, Canada, Quaternary climate changes are responsible for profound spatial reorganization of earth surface processes. These changes have left a landscape characterized by topographic anisotropy associated with a hierarchy of glacial troughs. The evolution of formerly glaciated landscapes is examined by considering a set of scaling relations and assessing their departures from known unglaciated trends. Ultimately, the magnitude of these departures should provide a measure of the state of landscape recovery (transience) from glacial disturbance. The set of scaling dependences studied includes slope-area relations, for assessing geomorphic process domains; landslide magnitude-frequency (LMF) and yield-area [...]
