Abstract

Nearly horizontal sedimentary sequences are typically eroded into escarpments capped by resistant rock layers. These escarpments record in planform the spatial variation in erosional processes. Simulation models have been constructed of scarp development by three processes, scarp backwasting, fluvial erosion, and groundwater sapping, acting singly or in combination. The simulated scarps are statistically compared with natural scarps using a multivariate suite of variables measuring planform shape
