Testing the tectonic significance of some parameters of longitudinal river profiles : the case of the Ardenne (Belgium, NW Europe)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The longitudinal profiles of 24 rivers of 3rd to 5th order have been analyzed in order to recognize the regional tectonic differentiation pattern of the Ardenne, a Paleozoic massif of NW Europe. Data collected exclusively from 1/25,000 topographic maps were used to define a set of parameters related to the geometry of the profile and proxies for river bedload and drainage area. The combined analysis of all the parameters confirms the current uplift of the NE Ardenne and points to a subsidence of the Namur area with respect to its SW and SE surroundings
