Abstract

A framework for the simulation of lateral stream and divide migration of non alluvial valleys is presented. Stream channels and hillslopes are modelled as mutual boundary conditions, with the horizontal channel shifting determined by the asymmetry of sediment delivery from opposite valley walls, and the ability of the stream to rapidly remove that debris. Conditions for the growth or decay of existing small tributaries are investigated along with implications for the development of stream junction angles in channel networks
