Abstract

The AA. investigate the role that groundwater movement plays in long-term drainage basin evolution by modifying a widely used landscape evolution model to include a more detailed representation of basin hydrology. Groundwater flow is simulated by a dynamic two-dimensional Dupuit equation for an unconfined aquifer with an irregular underlying impervious layer. The model is applied to the WE-38 basin, an experimental catchment in Pennsylvania. The results of this modelling exercise indicate that the basin can be divided into 3 zones with distinct streamflow-generating characteristics, and different parts of the basin can have different geomorphic effective events
