This may not be the case for regional attributes and landforms, because they are based on 52 Peter A. SHARY integrals that may exist even for non-smooth surfaces. The scale-free properties of some regional landforms were shown experimentally in Shary et al. (2002, 2005). g. g. grid mesh diminishes). Such topographic attributes do exist; examples are maximal catchment area in thalwegs (where it is an integral value), closed depression volume, and the maximal value of maximal catchment area that is reached at grid boundaries (Shary et al.
