Les rythmes de la morphogénèse : leurs conceptions à travers l'histoire de la géomorphologie

Abstract : The pace of morphogenesis has been a central issue in geomorphology since the discipline became a science in its own right. The major paradigms of catastrophism and uniformitarianism appeared before Davis. In Davisian theory, the evolution of landforms begins with a catastrophic event, but a continuous process is the main concept. After Davis, dynamic geomorphology and the concept of systems of denudation (and morphogenesis) became predominant, before being subsequently enhanced by neo-catastrophism.
