Abstract

Knickpoint (KP) recession in streams draining to glacio-isostatically uplifted shorelines in eastern Scotland is used to assess wether KP recession is a function of discharge ( here represented by its surrogate, catchment area). Knickpoints are identified using DS plots (log slope versus log downstream distance). A statistically significant power relationship is found between discharge of headward recession and catchment area
