Improved quantitative characterization of terrain and process, and an ever-improving theory that describes the continual modification of topography by the many and varied processes that shape it, together with improved observation and qualitative and quantitative modelling of geology, vegetation and erosion processes, will provide insights into the mechanisms that control catchment form and function. This paper reviews landscape theory - in the form of numerical models of drainage basin evolution and the current knowledge gaps and future computing challenges that exist. The AA. focus on landscapes that are organized around drainage basins and networks
