We have studied drainage development on active folds by using a numerical model that couples the kinematics of fault-propagation folding to a physical description of surface processes. Modeling results suggest that the dip of the underlying detachment exerts a major control on drainage development. For a nonzero detachment dip, the lateral displacement gradient sets up an axial slope behind the growing fold that diverts drainage so that the fold is shielded from rivers with large incision… CONTINUE READING
