Cover beds form a rather uniform veil of most slopes in Central Europe and, most likely, all over the mid-latitudes. Accordingly, their properties are of utmost importance for the formation of soils, for slope hydrology, and for slope dynamics. More research is, however, needed, as there is still insufficient information on the properties of cover-bed successions reaching deeper than 1 m, and there are still many areas where cover beds have not yet been studied at all. The potential use of cover beds for paleoenvironmental reconstructions is also still limited by the unsatisfactory techniques that are currently available for their numerical dating. Furthermore, better techniques for modeling the distribution and the properties of cover beds are required to forecast their influence on flooding events.

Mid Latitude Slope Deposits  Cover Beds

The occurrence and spatial distribution of cover beds are decisive for modern hillslope morphodynamics. This aspect is strongly associated with the geotechnical properties of cover beds and especially with their anisotropy. The impact of periglacial cover beds on mass movements, in particular landslides in subdued mountains, will be discussed in

Mid Latitude Slope Deposits  Cover Beds

Numerous case studies carried out in the subdued mountains of Germany during the last decades have revealed that periglacial cover beds play a decisive role in hillslope hydrology. Considering the omnipresence of cover beds in sloped terrain of the mid-latitudes, knowledge of slope-water paths is crucial not only for flood

Mid Latitude Slope Deposits  Cover Beds

Slope deposits that formed by unconcentrated dislocation and that cover slopes in a rather uniform way are referred to as “cover beds” in this book. They consist of materials from upslope but may contain admixed eolian matter. They are commonly multilayered with the individual layers separated by disconformities (lithological discontinuities).

Slope deposits, which veil entire slopes or large parts of them in a rather uniform manner (cover beds), are ubiquitous in the subdued mountains of Central Europe (e.g., ). Here, we show that successions of cover beds are not restricted to this area but occur in many other regions of

Mid Latitude Slope Deposits  Cover Beds

Slope deposits are common in any inclined relief. So-called cover beds may veil entire landscapes, in which case they are commonly overlooked or confused with soil horizons. This book focuses on these widespread deposits and discusses their properties, genesis, and age mainly in subdued mountains of Central Europe, where to

Cover beds are usually not regarded of use for relative dating. The examples discussed in this chapter demonstrate otherwise. Central European cover beds usually are of Pleistocene age, and they can be utilized for distinguishing older landforms, such as slope failures, covered by one or more cover beds, from those

The genesis of soils has been seen mostly as an autochthonistic process, that is, formation in situ. However, soil geomorphologists have recognized addition and loss of materials, for example, through eolian and colluvial processes, as a major contribution to allochthonistic soil formation. The most important characteristic of these soils is
