Landscape evolution initiates from a near-steady state landscape, subjected to a horizontal strain rate field simulating indentation of rigid blocks. River network and erosion rate are mapped over domain as a function of time. See Methods for model details. Upper and lower halves of the model can be regarded as independent realizations of a corner indentation problem as proposed for the TRR. Note increase in erosion rate variance with large areas of low erosion rate generated and maintained by loss of drainage area.
