The earth’s surface is shaped by a variety of processes; beside gravity-driven mass movements, erosion by water, wind, and glaciers are the most important examples. Fluvial erosion is ubiquitous in many climates; river networks can be considered as the backbone of the landscape. Thus, understanding the evolution of drainage networks has been a major challenge in geomorphology.
