The role of the relief in the definition of landscape units. The case of Muntanyes d’Ordal

D. Serrano Giné

Abstract


This paper deals on the importance of the relief in the landscape and, particularly, in the definition of landscape units. It establishes a classification that differentiates three approaches, according to the relief methodological treatment. Finally it develops a methodology according to surveys with geomorphological basis that is applied to Muntanyes d’Ordal (Barcelona). The results are completed with detailed cartography, where 36 units are identified, and with a succinct reflection on the goodness and difficulties of the employed method.
