Abstract

This article indicates the quantitative tools, with assistance of which it is possible to characterize the morphology (shape) of the valley network and determine their variability caused by the scale change. The monitored morphometric characteristics (quantitative tools) have been applied to the paradigmatic examples of the schematic valley networks and have been analyzed in three scales. In order to analyze the valley networks, the most suitable are “valley junction angles” and “homogeneity of various order valleys”, where the relevant values dropped while increasing the scale, but the normal (Gauss) distribution of values was preserved. - (EN)
