Documenting feedbacks between surface processes and structural deformation in East Timor using stream profile and drainage network analysis Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract While river profile analyses have long been used to evaluate the development of landforms, recent advances in analyzing drainage networks have significantly improved the ability to positively link stream profiles with surface uplift. In one such method, Perron and Royden (2012) define the value chi, an integral quantity based on the steady-state stream power equation which aids in determining the conformity of rivers and drainage basins to steady-state behavior. East Timor is an ideal location to test new methods using chi, as it …
