Nonlinear dynamical systems in geomorphology : revolution or evolution?

Special issue : Geomorphic systems

RENWICK, W. H.

Description :
The evidence that earth surface processes and landforms behave as dissipative systems with deterministic complexity (chaos) is reviewed. Second, fundamental conceptual implications of nonlinear dynamical systems, NDS, theory will be related to existing and traditional theoretical concepts of geomorphology. Finally, an attempt will be made to demonstrate the fundamental linkages between NDS theory and traditional concepts of landscape evolution.
