Abstract

This paper reviews and reconsiders the various equilibria concepts. Because the term is most frequently used qualitatively rather than quantitatively in geomorphology, conflation, imprecision, and outright error have been promoted. Given the difficulty of measuring thermal energy in the field, its inefficient use in nature, and the uncertainty with which it and form can be related, thermodynamic equilibria concepts would appear, presently, to offer geomorphologists only very limited opportunities
