Drainage basin sensitivity to tectonic and climatic forcing : implications of a stochastic model for the role of entrainment and erosion thresholds

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. describes a stochastic model for modelling long-term sediment transport and erosion rates that (a) incorporates an erosion threshold, and (b) captures the integrated effects of a spectrum of runoff events. Solutions are derived and numerically tested for 3 erosion/transport formulas : The Howard-Kerby shear-stress incision model, the Bridge-Domininic sediment transport model, and a generic shear-stress sediment transport model. Results imply that non-linearity resulting from threshold effects can have a first-order impact on topography and patterns of dynamic response to tectonic and climate forcing
