The AA. examined a generalized additive modeling (GAM) based approach to provide new theoretical insights into process–environment relationships. More precisely, they (i) simulated the shapes of the relationships between geomorphic processes and environmental variables based on GAM and (ii) compared the shapes of the simulated response curves to (a) the hypothetical curves based on theory and (b) the response curves produced by generalized linear modeling (GLM). The study is based on empirical cryoturbation and solifluction data and environmental variables from subarctic Finland. The findings indicate that careful examination of the response curves may provide new insights into theoretical debates in the earth sciences
