This article reviews previous investigations into gully and badland research and discusses processes and definitions in the context of existing research in southeast Spain. The theory of badland development is summarized and definitions are proposed which draw on previous work and continuing studies. The processes influencing gully and channel head morphology are then discussed including overland flow, hillslope processes, pipe initiation and enlargement, mass failures and the magnitude and frequency distribution of storm events. Finally, modelling of badland landscapes is discussed
