Effect of drainage area on hypsometry from an analysis of small-scale drainage basins in the Siwalik Hills (Central Nepal)

Description :
This review shows that hypsometry could be sensitive to various forcing factors such as tectonics, lithology and climate. Numerical and experimental modelling further shows the dependence of hypsometry on basin geometry. This study focuses on the sensitivity of hypsometry to different Digital Elevation Model (DEM) resolutions and on the influence of drainage area. With their results, the AA. propose that the scale dependence may reflect the varying importance of river and hillslope processes with basin area.
