We present the results of an experimental investigation of the concurrent action of tectonic uplift and climate variation on relief evolution. We designed an experimental apparatus that allows the study of erosion of laboratory-scale topographies that evolve under given uplift and rainfall rates. For constant uplift and rainfall rates, the experimental topography evolves toward a statistical steady state defined by a mean elevation constant with time. Starting from such a steady state and… CONTINUE READING
