The AA. evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of the ABM (Agent-Based Model) approach, and consider some of the major challenges with 2 case studies : 1) the Special Protection Area SIMulator version 1 (SPASIMv1) developed to examine relationships between changing human land use and the frequency and location of fires in an actual Mediterranean lanscape; 2) CybErosion developed for the evaluation of human-environment interactions in a geoarchaeological context. If the challenges (potential process-scale mismatches, investigators from different disciplines) can be overcome, this fully integrated approach will provide geomorphology a means to conceptualize soundly the study of human–landscape interactions by bridging the gap between social and physical approaches
