Abstract

This paper uses the SIBERIA catchment evolution model to explore linkages between catchment process and hypsometry. The AA. show that not only does the hypsometry reflect landscape runoff and erosion process, but it is strongly dependent on channel network and catchment geometry. They show that the width to length ratio of the catchment has a significant influence on the shape of the hypsometric curve, though little on the hypsometric integral. Experimental results for simulated landforms from a small-scale rainfall-erosion simulator are reported
