The study of morphotectonics is concerned with the analysis of landforms whose form or origins have been affected by neotectonic activity. Traditional morphotectonic studies have been used as a basis for more refined (e.g. statistical) analyses. After the 1960s, however, there emerged new techniques and new approaches to the study of morphotectonics. These have made more precise not only the recognition of morphotectonic features, but have also improved their dating.

The time has come to integrate morphotectonic studies more fully both with the approaches used by other disciplines and with modern geomorphological theory.
