LANDFORM GRADING AND SLOPE EVOLUTION. DISCUSSIONS AND CLOSURE

Two discussions of a paper with the aforementioned title by Schor and Gray, published in this journal (Volume 121, Number 10, October 1995), are presented. In the first discussion, Day raises concerns about landform grading in terms of compaction control and short-term stability. Day favors conventional, straight planar slopes over the authors' landform grading because zones of poor compaction are easier to identify and treat, and because planar slopes are more stable. In the second discussion, Dickey praises the authors' work, stating that the aesthetic superiority of Schor's slopes must be experienced in person. Dickey also notes that these slopes are superior in resistance to erosion. Discussions are followed by closure from the authors.
