Results of the 2D hydraulic model developed in the area of La Pedriza. This model refers to the variables flow depth (left) and velocity (centre). Noticeable variations observed in both variables are the result of large-scale roughness of bedrock and may be responsible for the development of large-scale bedrock forms, such as pools, potholes and grooves. The image on the right represents flow directions vectors, which could be correlated to occurrence of the abovementioned forms
