Abstract

Fifteen physical experiments on a stream table replicated four general mechanisms proposed to explain transverse drainage development, namely antecedence, superimposition, overflow, and piracy. The experimental design encompassed multiple strategies to effectively replicate the different mechanisms. These experiment roughly emulate natural fluvial processes including aggradation, lateral erosion, degradation, knickpoint retreat, ponding, and overflow. The experiments address landscape morphology and depositional field criteria associated with anrtecedence, overflow, and piracy
