One-line model description Landscape-scale soil evolution model
Extended model description Simulates soil evolution on three spatial dimensions, explicit particle size distribution and temporal dimension (hence 5D prefix) as a function of:

1. Bedrock and soil physical weathering; 2. Sediment transport by overland flow; 3. Soil Creep (diffusion); 4. Aeolian deposition.
