Advances in the understanding of physical principles underlying geophysical processes have enabled to develop complex numerical models of landscape evolution. This paper uses examples from glaciology that highlight the need for a balanced approach incorporating both immanent and configurational approaches. The key is that it is possible to explain and understand long-term processes without necessarily being able to predict them with numerical models
