On the extraction of channel networks from digital elevation data
Channel networks with artibtrary drainage density or resolution can be extracted from digital elevation data. However, for digital elevation data derived networks to be useful they have to beExpand

Hillslope processes, drainage density, and landscape morphology
Catchment morphology and drainage density are strongly influenced by hillslope processes. The consequences of several different hillslope process laws are explored in a series of experiments with aExpand

A coupled channel network growth and hillslope evolution model: 1. Theory
This paper presents a model of the long-term evolution of catchments, the growth of their drainage networks, and the changes in elevations within both the channels and the hillslopes. ElevationExpand

A stochastic approach to modeling the role of rainfall variability in drainage basin evolution
We develop a simple stochastic theory for erosion and sediment transport, based on the Poisson pulse rainfall model, in order to analyze how variability in rainfall and runoff influences drainageExpand

Energy dissipation, runoff production, and the three-dimensional structure of river basins
Three principles of optimal energy expenditure are used to derive the most important structural characteristics observed in drainage networks: (1) the principle of minimum energy expenditure in anyExpand

Preserving high-resolution surface and rainfall data in operational-scale basin hydrology: a fully-distributed physically-based approach
Abstract This study presents various aspects of the continuous simulation capabilities of a fully-distributed, triangulated irregular network (TIN) hydrologic model. The TIN-based Real-timeExpand
