Abstract

Topography reflects the terrain composition and the forces to which it is exposed. A model of basin evolution is shown to produce quantitatively different topography for different relative magnitudes of diffusive and incisive erosion processes. Spatial heterogeneities in erosivity also influence the simulated topography. The calibration of this evolution model is compared to observed topography. The effect of spatial heterogeneous erosivity is shown to be crucially important to reproduce the cumulative area distribution of observed topography
