Abstract

Two approaches to modelling surface erosion are described which can be used to explain the development of geomorphological features. The first approach uses non-linear wave theory and shows how surface gradient discontinuities can arise as the erosion of an initially smooth surface proceeds. A second approach uses a computational cellular method. The application of the cellular method to problems of geomorphological interest are discussed
