ABSTRACT

Previous studies on fluvial landforms in Chungcheongbukdo (Province) are reviewed in this study. Various micro-forms, like pothole and grooves, are found from channel bed of mountain streams incising granite area of Sobaek mountain range. However only the forms at Hwayang valley area were studied. Fluvial terraces can be found from the Danyang area, mid reach of the Nanhangang (River). Lower terrace of this area are regarded as fill terrace, while upper terraces are weathered strath terrace. There are some proposed hypothesis on the age and forming processes of terraces, but further scientific analysis on the chemical composition of weathered sediment and burial ages are needed. Number of abandoned channels are formed by meander cut along the head and mid reach of Dalchen (River), a tributary of Namhangang. Information on the burial age of the sediment can contribute to the studies on the landform change of Sobaek mountain range. Abandoned palaeo-channel and terraces can be found from the Chogangcheon (River) in Yeongdonggun, southern part of Chungcheonbukdo. There are previous studies on fluvial terraces along the Mihocheon(River), the forming age and processes of terrace are reported recently.
