Abstract

The study of cataclysmic geomorphological processes is the basic science complement to the applied study of natural geomorphological hazards. Because of problems in field measurement, the scaling of experimental models, and the testing of theoretical simulations, cataclysmic geomorphological processes are probably best analyzed by event reconstruction. New developments in the mathematical modeling of geomorphological processes, geochronology, and the statistical treatment of geological data are converging to improve greatly the understanding of natural cataclysms and their effects on the landscapes. -from Author
