ABSTRACT - The concept of form in its subjective (strictly qualitative) connotations is inappropriate as the organizing principle for geographical investigations. Yet, elements identified as formal (structural/morphological) which are objectively measurable are valid for study and possible integrations toward holistic conclusions. Thus, if the form-function-process approach is to be advanced, the formal segment must be stated in a clearly determinable mode in order to allow integration.
