2000; in press). Similarly, the spatial scale is large, focussing on continental scale sediment redistribution within large fluvial systems. This requires not only a reconstruction of past landscape behaviour and an understanding of its development, but also the use of modelling approaches for the prediction of future trends. Thus three aspects for research can be identified: 1. Reconstruction of past sediment redistribution within fluvial systems and over the period of agriculture. 2. Identification of the relative contributions of climate and land use to the sediment flux.

The approach is based on the thesis that it is the development of landscape configuration that should be modelled on larger scales, and therefore an aggregated modelling approach for landform structure and sediment redistribution is required. Emphasis is placed on (a) frequency/magnitude spectra as a means of integrating sediment generating processes of different nature, (b) temporal aggregation for parameterisation of driving forces, and (c) routing of sediment through a topological network of morphologically defined landscape units.
