Se hizo la diagramacion logaritmica de la elevacion con respecto a la longitud del cauce relacionando la erosion y los puntos de perturbacion a lo largo del cauce del rio denominados knickpoints.
Sin embargo, se observan cambios en la pendiente de la curva que corresponde a los knickpoints que indican los sitios en los que se generan anomalias en el cauce.
Esta informacion se combino con la informacion obtenida de los knickpoints, con el fin de trazar con mayor precision las fallas que atraviesan la zona de estudio.
The knick zone which is represented by knickpoints migrates upstream as the channel responds to the uplift-rate change.
The knickpoints are important as their upstream migration helps to understand the landscape response to a local based level fall and the corresponding sediments fluxes from rejuvenated catchments (Bishop et al, 2005).
Differential movement between the subsiding Gulf of Valencia trough and its raising shoulders in The Catalan Coastal Ranges in this period ensured its role as a physical barrier which first closed the lacustrine Ebro basin and later formed a fundamental knickpoint on the proto-Ebro river.
This was not a catastrophic event, because there would have been a time-lag between the opening and the knickpoint created took a long time to be developed completely and to be eroded.
Rivers probably had a convex longitudinal profile with a low stream gradient on the upper end and knickpoints at the klint.
It is often reasonable to install weirs at existing channel knickpoints or where boulder sills are beginning to reform naturally.
2012) e Nascimento (2013) assinala a existencia de determinacao morfoestrutural e morfotectonica do relevo da Serra do Mar no Parana, destacando feicoes geomorfologicas e estruturais tipicas de areas com tectonismo recente, tais como escarpas de linhas de falhas, depositos aluvionares segmentados por knickpoints, anomalias de drenagem, paleosuperficies deformadas entre outros.
