Abstract

The AA. review elements of a structured approach to model development and testing. It is argued that natural breaks in landscape process and morphology define appropriate spatial domains for the study of landscape evolution. The concept of virtual velocity is used to define appropriate timescales for the study of landscape change. Issues relevant to model implementation, including validation, verification, calibration and confirmation, are discussed. Finally, key developments and characteristics associated with 3 approaches to the study of landscape modelling : conceptual, quasi-mechanistic and general physics, are reviewed
