Geomorphological features of the Peruvian Andes

G.F. Ufimtsev

The characteristic features of the relief and morphogenesis of the Peruvian Andes are described, which represent an expanded portion of a young mountain belt with an intrinsic array of geomorphological paradoxes and disturbances in altitudinal zona¬lity of the morphogenesis. This study identified the main types of river valleys and alpine lake depressions, valley and piedmont pediments, surfaces of volcanic accumulation, shore terraces, and varied manifestations of the aeolian morphogenesis. The main kinds of natural monuments and morphological landscapes are characterized.

Keywords: relief, morphogenesis, geographical zonality, altitudinal zonality, shore terraces, aeolian processes.
