Short summary
We analyze steady-state bedrock river profiles via a coupled approach. First, we identify channel types from slope–area data. Then, we get concavity and steepness indices of bedrock channels by the chi analysis. We run bivariant linear regression statistic tests for the two methods to examine and eliminate autocorrelation of residuals. We apply the coupled approach to rivers in the Mendocino Triple Junction region of northern California and get reliable results consistent with previous work.
