The soil pH is calculated as a result of this CO2 distribution. Kirkby (1985) enhanced his soil profile model by also simulating the processes of percolation, equilibrium solution, leaching of solutes, ionic diffusion, organic mixing, leaf fall, organic decomposition, and mechanical denudation. Each process leads to second-order linear partial differential equations. Minasny and McBratney (1999, 2001) introduced a basic mechanistic quantitative soil formation model based on the conceptual ideas of Huggett (1975) and Heimsath et al.

Biological and physical processes, aided by gravity (Amundson, 2004). Soil transport is then modeled as random diffusive-like transport or oriented down a slope gradient. In the following, the basis for landscape evolution models is presented, followed by the implementation of soil in landscape evolution models. 1. Landscape evolution models Landscape evolution usually results from processes of erosion and deposition. In particular, landscape evolution models replicate long-term hillslope evolution via the principles of the conservation of mass.

Generally, the rock to soil ratio of an immobile, slowly weatherable mineral is used to estimate rates of chemical weathering based on its loss and gain. In most of the studies, zircon (Zr) is used. Before discussing the studies that applied this approach, the term “total denudation rate” used in these publications needs to be clarified: The term total denudation rate refers to the combined rate of chemical and physical weathering of rock to soil. In publications of Riebe et al. (2003, 2004a, 2004b), Green et al.
