Tortoises and hares : dissolution, erosion and isostasy in landscape evolution

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Denudation mechanisms differ fundamentally between limestone and silicate rock types, which are subject to very different rate thresholds and enhancers/inhibitors. Denudation of limestone and of silicates cannot be encompassed by simple models of differential mechanical erosion of hard and soft rocks. The mechanisms involved, and the factors which influence them, are so fundamentally different that the denudation of these 2 main lithologies must be considered separately before the results are combined in any overview of the evolution of a mixed lithology landscape
