Identifying topographic and erosion rate response to tectonic and climatic forcing remains challenging. This is in part because of the difficulty in isolating the respective roles of climate and tectonics. Here we exploit 2500 thermochronometric data points collected over several decades of research, using a new inverse technique, to image the space-time evolution of erosion rate across the European Alps over the past 35 m.y. The most striking feature of our results is a two- to three-fold… CONTINUE READING
