Lithology is acknowledged to be an important internal catchment control on flow processes to adjacent alluvial fans. However, the role of inherited structural configurations (e.g. bedrock attitude) in catchment connectivity and sediment transport is rarely considered. We examine four young (<100-year-old) active tributary junction alluvial fan systems from the Dadès Valley in the High Atlas of Morocco in terms of their catchment-scale connectivity, sediment transfer and resulting alluvial fan processes. The catchments occur on the same lithologies (limestones and interbedded mudstones), but experience different passive structural configurations (tilted and structurally thickened beds). The fan systems react differently to historical...
