N2 - Catchment morphology and hydrological processes are linked through the geomorphic development of a catchment. The relaxation times of hillslope development are often long relative to time scales of climatic change, so that hillslope form may be a reflection more of hydrological regimes in the distant past than current processes.

Studies of the relationship between morphology and runoff routing and runoff production are reviewed, including methods of physically-based flood frequency predictions that combine both production and routing.
