Abstract

In constructing large-scale landscape development models, processes must be appropriately represented over extended scales of space and time. Suitable methods must be found for the generalization of processes that capture the essential character of landscapes as they evolve. The diffusion equation was introduced into geomorphological reasoning for this purpose. Diffusivities estimated in this study are compared with values derived in scarp studies and values adopted in landscape development models. Discussion of the results
