Table 3 Results of the Monte Carlo simulations with Matlab for the 4 Mandach samples

From: The first major incision of the Swiss Deckenschotter landscape

  Age (ka) Inheritance (104 atoms/g) Erosion rate (cm/ka)
Mean 1,005.5 0.62 16.22
Median 1,005.9 0.62 16.19
Mode 1,021.2 0.61 15.86
Minimum χ2 922.5 0.67 14.83
Maximum 1,100.0 1.00 21.80
Minimum 900.0 0.34 11.38
  1. Total number of simulated profiles is 100,000. For the minimum and maximum values 3 − σ confidence level is applied. Please note that erosion rate statistics cannot be used for reporting a value for erosion rate (Hidy et al. 2010)
