Ten years after the Wenchuan earthquake, most of the new sediment it produced remained on the landscape, indicating a long recovery time.
Using susceptibility models to forecast the potential locations of landslides is a key tool in mitigating landslide hazard, but are existing approaches appropriate in dynamic mountainous settings?
The flooding that carved eastern Washington State 20,000 to 12,000 years ago could have been 80% smaller than the canyons’ volume today.
Ice Age climate swings shaped the equatorial basin’s terrain—and possibly its ecology—faster than previously thought.
Rainfall varies with elevation, and such precipitation gradients can have profound and often counterintuitive effects on topography.
Researchers use a closed-loop modeling strategy to validate regional uplift patterns recorded in river profiles across the African continent.
A new study pinpoints grain scale dynamics during binary interactions between barchan dunes.
A new analytical model describes how the amount and grain size of sediment transported by rivers influences bedrock channel width, which can be used to predict where rivers will widen or narrow.
Detailed measurements of the geometry and flow of Laurichard rock glacier over 67 years reveal the distinctive behavior of these landforms through periods of warming and cooling.
Scale-dependent feedbacks in time, rather than in space, result in a new type of competition, explaining the regularly patterned landscape of Big Cypress National Preserve in South Florida.
