Typical geomorphological features include pillars, columns, towers, obelisks and needles, sometimes reaching a height of 40 m.
The effects of increased precipitation for freshwater habitats will be primarily geomorphological, especially in the increased sediment loads in rivers and the increased deposition of sediments in lakes, at hydroelectric dams, and in estuaries.
The present geomorphological form has evolved in historical times.
If, however, climatic conditions alter the severity of such events, this is likely to affect particular geomorphological processes.
Since most geomorphological activity occurs during freeze-up and breakup, changes in the timing of these events are very unlikely to have any significant effect.
That is, strictly protected areas set aside to protect biodiversity and also possibly geological/geomorphological features, where human visitation, use and impacts are strictly controlled and limited to ensure protection of the conservation values.
In terms of its large area of massive quartzite sandstone peaks, the site presents an unique geomorphological spectacle, which is also of great aesthetic attraction.
Category Ia: Strict nature reserve - strictly protected areas set aside to protect biodiversity and also possibly geological/geomorphological features, where human visitation, use and impacts are strictly controlled and limited to ensure protection of the conservation values.
