Abstract

This paper assesses the role of hillslope/channel coupling for the sensitivity of upland geomorphic systems, using evidence from a 30-year monitoring programme of geomorphic change in the Carlingill valley, Howgill Fells, northwest England. The magnitude and frequency characteristics of geomorphic activity over the last 30 years are examined within each functional zone of the Carling valley. Coupling characteristics are established and the implications for the sensitivity of the system are considered
