Process

Describe processes represented by the model Weathering and erosion of bedrock on a hillslope; vertical and horizontal displacement due to earthquakes.
Describe key physical parameters and equations See:

Tucker, G. E., S. W. McCoy, A. C. Whittaker, G. P. Roberts, S. T. Lancaster, and R. Phillips (2011), Geomorphic significance of postglacial bedrock scarps on normal-fault footwalls, J. Geophys. Res., 116, F01022, doi:10.1029/2010JF001861.

Describe length scale and resolution constraints Resolution on order of one to a few meters. Domain length grows over time, reaching order tens to hundreds of meters long.
Describe time scale and resolution constraints Typical time scale of order tens to hundreds of thousands of years.
Describe any numerical limitations and issues


Testing

Describe available calibration data sets For case study see:
