Abstract

This paper presents a theory of spatially divergent self-organization related to the latter, showing that autogenic differentiation is directly linked to dynamical instability and chaos. The determination of the self-organization properties of a landscape should be a starting point rather than a goal of geographic explanation. The extent to which field-testable hypotheses are generated, or explanations provided based on process mechanics or landscape history, will ultimately determine the utility of self-organization concepts and methods in physical geography
