Geographer Kurt Scharlau categorized the different types in the 1930s, making distinctions between temporary and permanent Wüstung, settlements used for different purposes (farms or villages), and the extent of abandonment (partial or total). K. Scharlau, ''Beiträge zur geographischen Betrachtung der Wüstungen'', Badische Geographische Abteilungen Vol. 10, Freiburg i. Br. 1933.
