Findings on the river’s age also have implications for past landscape change in Asia.
New research provides a theoretical explanation of channel cross section geometry dependence on flow rate that is commonly observed and described with power-laws.
New meteoric 10Be data quantify fast erosion of slates in the Zhuoshui River catchment in Taiwan and demonstrate the influence of lithology on landscape steepness.
Laboratory experiments and grain-scale computer simulations during the past decade have led to a more universal understanding of flow-driven sediment transport across flows in oil, water, and air.
Terrestrial meander migration rates are used to estimate a formation timescale of decades for Jezero delta on Mars.
Accurately assessing flood hazards requires a better understanding of the feedbacks between natural and human influences on the characteristics of rivers.
Streams in flatter watersheds have carbon cycles more sensitive to temperature increases.
He conducted river morphology research based on systematic and reproducible measurements, pushing fluvial hydrology to become a more quantitative science.
A new algorithm incorporates randomness into stream channel formation and suggests the approach represents regions with variable flood magnitudes better than standard models.
A new modeling blueprint seeks to unify sedimentology, hydrology, and hydrogeology in the modeling of streambeds.
