Abstract

This paper presents a critique of that magnitude-frequency concept which defines an effective, or dominant event in terms of long-term sediment transport, and then associates this with channel morphology. A more appropriate geomorphological research programme is suggested, which emphasises the continuing and spatially-distributed feedback between form and process. This is applicable to a wide range of geomorphological problems, in both unconsolidated materials and hard rock
