Schematic representation of a lectern

A panel plaice is in geomorphology and tectonics of a particular form tectonic fracture plaice, which was unilaterally raised along a breaking zone so that starting from the ridge , of the main watershed of the mountains, the ground on one side falls relatively flat, while on the other hand; along the break, there is a steep slope. The resulting desk shape gave this mountain shape its name.

The reason for the uneven lifting of the clod is high static friction on the flat side. This is caused by the high horizontal pressure and by a vertically odd and / or weakly pronounced break. Depending on the direction, a distinction is made between postponement and deportation ; leaf shifts rarely result in shed-like structures.

The erosion energy per area differs enormously (regardless of the main weather direction) due to the different gradient, so that the flat side is eroded significantly more slowly than the steep one. It is therefore partially even in the direction of the ridge.
