The foundations of modern quantitative geomorphology
have been built within the paradigm of steady-state landscapes responding to slow changes in climatic or tectonic conditions, mainly rainfall or uplift rate.
Quantitative Geomorphology: Geo-Environmental phenomenon that is responsible for the sculpturing of land surface produce surface geometry from which numerical data can be obtained.

The results show the feasibility of continental-scale quantitative geomorphology based on SRTM data and provide insights into the distribution of closed basins.

Coupling of quantitative geomorphology
and hydrology which is at the core of this approach is not a new concept, however, with the advent of new RS systems that operate at high resolutions and new processing capabilities in GIS the use of GIUH has become very attractive for water practitioners and hydrologic modelers.
