Channel-reach morphology in mountain drainage basins
A classification of channel-reach morphology in mountain drainage basins synthesizes stream morphologies into seven distinct reach types: colluvial, bedrock, and five alluvial channel types (cascade,Expand
A systematic analysis of eight decades of incipient motion studies, with special reference to gravel-bedded rivers
Data compiled from eight decades of incipient motion studies were used to calculate dimensionless critical shear stress values of the median grain size, t* c 50 . Calculated t* c 50 values wereExpand
A physically based model for the topographic control on shallow landsliding
A model for the topographic influence on shallow landslide initiation is developed by coupling digital terrain data with near-surface through flow and slope stability models. The hydrologic modelExpand

  • 14 August 2007
Data drawn from a global compilation of studies quantitatively confirm the long-articulated contention that erosion rates from conventionally plowed agricultural fields average 1–2 orders ofExpand
Topographic controls on erosion rates in tectonically active mountain ranges
The functional relationship between erosion rate and topography is central to understanding both controls on global sediment flux and the potential for feedback between tectonics, climate, andExpand
Landslide erosion controlled by hillslope material
Landslide erosion is a primary control of landscape relief. A wide-ranging analysis of landslide geometry shows that soil-based landslides are generally less voluminous than landslides that involveExpand
PROCESS DOMAINS AND THE RIVER CONTINUUM
ABSTRACT: The concept of process domains is proposed as an alternative to the River Continuum Concept for the influence of geomorphic processes on aquatic ecosystems. Broadly defined, the ProcessExpand
LARGE WOODY DEBRIS JAMS, CHANNEL HYDRAULICS AND HABITAT FORMATION IN LARGE RIVERS
Field surveys document the accumulation of large woody debris (LWD) into structurally distinctive jam types in the alluvial channel of the Queets River on the Olympic Peninsula of north westExpand
Geologic constraints on bedrock river incision using the stream power law
Denudation rate in unextended terranes is limited by the rate of bedrock channel incision, often modeled as work rate on the channel bed by water and sediment, or stream power. The latter can beExpand
A process-based model for colluvial soil depth and shallow landsliding using digital elevation data
A model is proposed for predicting the spatial variation in colluvial soil depth, the results of which are used in a separate model to examine the effects of root strength and vertically varyingExpand
