A Synthesis of Equilibrium and Historical Models of Landform Development.
Renwick, William H.
Journal of Geography, v84 n5 p205-10 Sep-Oct 1985
The synthesis of two approaches that can be used in teaching geomorphology is described. The equilibrium approach explains landforms and landform change in terms of equilibrium between landforms and controlling processes. The historical approach draws on climatic geomorphology to describe the effects of Quaternary climatic and tectonic events on landforms. (RM)
