Can you identify evidence in this scene of the three phases illustrated in Figure 12.3?

To determine

The evidence in this scene of the three phases illustrated in Figure 12.3.

Explanation

The difference in the elevation of the Earth’s surface and the shape of individual landforms implies the opposing tendencies of endogenic and exogenic processes. When the endogenic processes cease or operate at a slow rate compared to exogenic processes on a landscape then the relief that is achieved through the tectonic and volcanic processes will decrease over time. The rate of exogenic processes are influenced by the factors such as the resistance of rock to weathering and erosion, the amount of relief, and the climate.

Generally, a single geomorphic agents is not working alone in the development of a landform. Instead, the processes such as weathering, mass wasting and various geomorphic agents are working together to modify the landscape and the evidence that supports the role of multiple processes that can be identified from a landscape...
