1. Eastern Uplands (EU)
1.4 Dissected landscapes at a range of elevations
These landscapes are the result of the more mature end of the processes that have formed and are still active in the steep, deeply dissected landscapes of 1.4.4. The streams have commonly attained a relatively stable grade, the valleys are wider and stream terraces have formed, the divides are lower and valley-side slopes generally less steep. Alluvial/colluvial fans have accumulated at the base of some slopes. The ridge-tops have become more convex (rounded) and their elevations are lower. Small alluvial flats have formed where local barriers to stream down-cutting slow stream velocities. Maximum elevations are 700 m, with up to 200 m of local relief.
