Luke A. McGuire, Jon D. Pelletier, José A. Gómez and Mark A. Nearing Controls on the spacing and geometry of rill networks on hillslopes: Rain splash detachment, initial hillslope roughness, and the competition between fluvial and colluvial transport Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface 118

Version of Record online: 20 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrf.20028

Key Points

  • Model predictions of rill networks are compared to physical experiments
  • No critical threshold marks the transition from dendritic to parallel networks
  • A scaling relationship is developed for the spacing of parallel rills
