process-response system

process-response system In geomorphology, a natural system that is formed by the combination of at least one morphological and one cascading system. It therefore shows how form and geomorphological process are related. An example is the coastal process-response system, in which the cascading system of wave energy advances from deep water to the edge of the swash zone, and is linked to various morphological features of the shallowing zone.
