Abstract

Bedrock outcrops set the boundaries of mountain streams and confine channel-hillslope evolution. Acquisition of current spatial erosion data is challenging, so few local measurements exist and it is hard to assess process mechanic concepts/models on various spatio-temporal scales. I will present insights from several spatial erosion measurement techniques and speculate on the dependence of erosion process dominance. If you want to meet with him, please sign up here.
