Reexamination of a predictive equation of waterfall recession rates in Boso Peninsula, Chiba Prefecture, Japan

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Relationships between recession rates of waterfalls and their controlling factors are examined for waterfalls in the Boso district using an equation proposed by Hayakawa and Matsukura (Earth Surf. Process. Landforms, 28, 2003). The long-term mean recession rates of waterfalls are obtained by estimating the original location and age of waterfalls, while the factors affecting the rate are determined with measurable physical parameters including : drainage area and mean annual precipitation of catchments above a waterfall; height and width of waterfall face; and unconfined compressive strength of bedrock. Discussion of the results
