Beeson and McCoy (2022) present several interesting methods for detecting uplift from river profiles; however, these techniques rely on conditions and assumptions that are not met in the Sierra Nevada. Moreover, one of the key predictions from their numerical model, the presence of migrating knickpoints along the Sierra’s trunk streams, is not supported by field observations or digital elevation model (DEM) analyses.
