A landform element may be described by the following attributes, assessed within a circle of about 20 m radius: slope; morphological type; dimensions; mode of geomorphological activity; geomorphological agent. The glossary of types of landform element occurring in Australia (page 31) refers explicitly to this set of attributes. A landform element that has been described may thus be assigned a type name. A shorter description consists simply of slope, morphological type, and name (page 26).
