Process-based models are spatio-temporal numerical models that represent real-world processes occurring in a geomorphological system. Containing scientific theory, empirical data and assumptions, they function as an instrument or tool in geomorphological research to solve a particular problem. It is discussed that the properties of a model, how it is used, and what is required to estimate its components depends on the purpose of modelling. This is shown for a number of different purposes in geomorphological research.
