control system

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

In geomorphology, a process–response system where human interference changes the natural functioning of the system. For example, the trapping of sediments that occurs where beach groynes are built may lead to erosion within the adjacent sub-system and so to a change in the geometry of the overall process–response system.
