The impact of depression removal on catchment geomorphology, soil erosion and landscape evolution

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study examines whether a digital elevation model can be hydrologically correct (i.e. all depressions removed so that all water can run downslope) before use in a landscape evolution model and what effect depression removal has on long-term geomorphology and hydrology. The impact on sediment transport rates is also examined. The study was conducted using a field catchment (Tin Camp Creek in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia) and a proposed landform for a post-mining landscape. The results show that there is little difference in catchment geomorphology and hydrology for the non-depression removed and depression removed data sets
