Tectonic geomorphology

Description :
The aim of this paper is to model the sensitive of drainage systems to increased regional gradient at both the river-network scale and gully-system scale. The research is applied to a semi-arid region experiencing extensional tectonic activity. The main assumption made throughout the paper is that large-scale tectonic stresses cause geological blocks to tilt and this has a profound influence on the drainage systems.
