Here the AA. quantify hillslope response to tectonic across a threshold landscape in the San gabriel Mountains, California, using an 1 m resolution, LiDAR-derived digital elevation model, high resolution panoramic photographs, and cosmogenic beryllium-10 derived catchment erosion rates. Two distinct trends in hillslope behavior emerge : below and above catchment-mean slopes of 30°. Their results reveal important textural details lost in 10 or 30 m resolution digital elevation models of steep landscapes, and highlight the need for process-based studies of threshold hillslopes and colluvial channels
