A critical assessment of the sensitivity concept in geomorphology

Landscape sensitivity : principles and applications in northern cool temperate environments

Auteurs :

Description :
The landscape sensitivity concept concerns the likelihood that a given change in the controls of a system or the forces applied to the system will produce a sensible, recognisable, and persistent response. Change takes place through time and space as a normal process-response function to these specifications and involves material transport, morphological evolution and structural rearrangement. To make progress with these issues, the nature of waves of aggression, temporal adjustments to disturbing forces, spatial interactions with structure, divergent pathways of change propagation, evolution of barriers to change, effects of inheritance, and the effects of change on system specifications all need to be understood at all temporal and spatial scales.
