Abstract
Synthetic model run with complex geological configuration. One of the main advantages of LEMs is their potential to explore different geo-tectonic configurations and corresponding hypothesis at avery low cost. As an example, we simulated landscape evolution over a time span of 30 Myr. Successively, three spatial and temporally dependent uplift scenarios are imposed to the model. On top of this three scenarios, a horizontal shortening field is imposed over the simulated domain with high lateral displacements in the left upper corner, linearly decreasing in both x and y directions to the Southeastern bottom of the simulated domain.
