Abstract

The A. develops a three-dimensional numerical model of fluvial landsculpting operative over large periods of time and large spatial scales. The model is based on simple approximations intended to capture the synoptic effects of fluvial processes. Experiments with the model also offer tentative insight into how climatic and tectonic variables affect the evolqution of landscapes. The results of the model also relate to the complexity of natural landscape and its description through the language of fractal geometry
