Abstract

Rapid emergence and subsequent glacial and periglacial action on Macquarie Island
have placed it in a state of high erosional activity. The dominant processes are
mass erosion through landslips, soil creep slumping and solifluction. Fluvial and
aeolian erosion are only important in very restricted areas. Rabbit activity has had
a minimal effect on the overall rates of erosion although appearing significant in
some localised areas.
