Abstract

This paper discusses some of the implications of actualistic and evolutionary theory which emphasises slow steady change to landscapes toward a belief that landscapes can also change suddenly from one (stable?) state to another. For the A., C. LYELL was a precursor and has considerable importance for geomorphology, even though he exaggerated the effect of the sea, and underestimated valley formation to an inhibiting degree. The A. then studies the nature of event geomorphology (the nature of processes, event effectiveness, lifetime of landforms)
