Short summary
Concepts of landscape equilibrium often enable the interpretation of landscape response to various forces. However, we demonstrate that standard conceptions of landscape equilibrium do not apply in layered rocks. We develop a more general mathematical description of steady state based on a constraint of land surface continuity. In the case of rock layers that are nearly horizontal, this continuity steady state makes substantially different predictions about the nature of equilibrium landscapes.
