Entropy and optimality in river deltas
The form and function of river deltas is intricately linked to the evolving structure of their channel networks, which controls how effectively deltas are nourished with sediments and nutrients.Understanding the coevolution ...
Scale-dependent erosional patterns in steady-state and transient-state landscapes
Landscape topography is the expression of the dynamic equilibrium between external forcings (for example, climate and tectonics) and the underlying lithology. The magnitude and spatial arrangement of erosional and depositional ...
Network robustness assessed within a dual connectivity framework: joint dynamics of the Active and Idle Networks
Network robustness against attacks has been widely studied in fields as diverse as the Internet, power grids and human societies. But current definition of robustness is only accounting for half of the story: the connectivity ...
Quantifying the signature of sediment composition on the topologic and dynamic complexity of river delta channel networks and inferences toward delta classification
(Geophysical Research Letters, 2016)
Deltas contain complex self-organizing channel networks that nourish the surface with sediment and nutrients. Developing a quantitative understanding of how controlling physical mechanisms of delta formation relate to the ...
