Time and printout parameters: (1) Running time (Tmax), (2) time step (dt), (3) number of time steps per output storage (w).]]
Future versions of the model will include the profile evolution.
The key equations are a sediment mass balance and the boundary conditions dictated by diffusive transport (i.e., the sediment flux is proportional to the local bed slope through the fluvial diffusivity). To first order calculations, we assume the fluvial diffusivity to be half the water discharge per unit width (they both have the same units). More accurate expressions for the fluvial diffusivity can be found in Paola 2000 and Lorenzo-Trueba et al.2009.
