The dispersive nature of the highly sodic silts of the Triassic-rich unit of the Góchar formation plays a fundamental role in the erosion of the Mocatán catchment badlands in Almería, where a rejuvenating pipe and incised channel network is rapidly evacuating slope materials. Referring to concepts of medium- and long-term landscape evolution, and incorporating contemporary thoughts on the role of connectivity in system evolution from the geomorphological literature, this paper attempts to develop a conceptual model of the way geologic, topographic, material property and ecological factors combine to explain the complex geomorphological of the site. Both theoretical and management implications are explored
