Abstract

By extending an existing armouring model, ARMOUR, and using a variety of published weathering mechanisms this interaction has been explored. The model predicts that while this is generally true, in some cases erosion can be decreased by weathering. A quantitative understanding of this interaction will allow to model the change in long-term soil erodibility and erosion rates, an important component of predicting the long-term evolution of landforms. Because the AA. have ignored biogenic effects they do not claim to fully model soil development, but only the interaction between armouring and weathering
