Abstract

In this work the AA. present a numerical framework for simulation of surface processes and landforms. The model is called SIGNUM (Simple Integrated Geomorphological NUmerical Model) and is a Matlab, TIN-based landscape evolution model. The AA. use the model to show a few examples of simulated topographic surfaces evolved through application of mathematical expressions for hillslope and fluvial erosion, channel sediment transport and surface uplift. Although work in the field of computer simulation of geomorphological processes of landscape evolution is at its beginning, results and insights from models are gaining more and more attention in the scientific community, justifying and encouraging increasing research efforts. - (NF)
