The major link between geomorphology and basin analysis is the sediment flux from catchment to basin. It is the various controls (lithological, morphological, climatic and botanical) upon the magnitude of sediment flux that link the 2 subjects. These variables require the total sediment flux to be integrated over the whole range of the catchment, particularly when evaluating the effects of climate change. Contrasting trends in sediment discharge reflect both the nature of climate and vegetation change and source rock lithology
