Sediment generation during the process of urbanization is accelerated many folds, affecting the stream channel morphology. Rate of this sediment generation depends on the landuse and land cover. Regions in the humid tropics are particularly vulnerable to such accelerated sediment generation due to the characteristic high-intensity rainfall. The presentation examines the salient points related to the geomorphological processes under such conditions with special references to humid tropical environments. References to relevant lietrature and field data are included.
