Abstract

Valleys dissecting the Pleistocene terraces are well developed in the Kanto Plain. Some valleys dissecting the fluvial uplands, such as the Musashino and Sagamino uplands, have long, poor-branched and gutter-shaped forms. These valleys are estimated to have been formed by the reciprocal processes of tephra deposition and the remnant stream erosion. Valleys in marine-origin uplands show different features from those of fluvial-origin uplands. Asymmetrical valleys are also seen in valleys dissecting the Kanto Plain. -from Author
