Badlands - Basin & Landscape Dynamics
Basin and Landscape Dynamics (Badlands) is a long-term surface evolution model built to simulate landscape development, sediment transport and sedimentary basins formation from upstream regions down to marine environments.

What’s in the box?
Badlands is an open-source Python-based code and can be used to simulate:
- hillslope processes (linear & non-linear diffusion),
- fluvial incision (Stream Power Law, Transport Capacity Law)
- sediment transport and deposition,
- wave-induced longshore drift transport,
- reef growth and carbonate platform formation,
- submarine gravity currents (turbidity currents),
- spatially and temporally varying tectonic (horizontal + vertical displacements) and
- effects of climate changes (rainfall) and/or sea-level fluctuations.
