Deterministic chaos and historical geomorphology : a review and look forward

Auteur :
PHILLIPS, J.D.

Description :
This paper focuses on deterministic chaos. The major classes of techniques for detecting chaos in geomorphic systems are reviewed. There are methods for detecting chaos in spatial data, including qualitative and categorical data. Many of these are similar to, or are adaptations of, familiar techniques for partitioning within- and between-unit variation, and for identifying elementary uniform landscape units. Even more important is the need to further inform the study of nonlinear dynamics on the basis of field-based geomorphology.
