Book Description

2 April 1991 0582301564 978-0582301566 1
The plate tectonics revolution in the earth sciences has provided a valuable new framework for understanding long-term landform development.

This innovative text provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject of global geomorphology, with the emphasis placed on large-scale processes and phenomena. Integrating global tectonics into the study of landforms and incorporating planetary geomorphology as a major component the author discusses the impact of climatic change and the role of catastrophic events on landform genesis and includes a comprehensive study of surface geomorphic processes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Geomorpholgy! 30 Aug 2003
By A Customer
A must for undergraduate physical geography students. A comprehensive text that explains most of the processes and landforms studied at undergraduate level. But not to be used as a stand alone text, you will still have to trawl through journals for the in depth research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 28 Jan 2010
By Gali Z.

I am from Hungary and I am a researcher. I have bought this book to learn the vocational use of the English language and to use its knowledges in my scientific work. I must say the book is really complex, broad and perspicuous! Pictures are expressive and it is full of informations and truly needed for geography, geomorphology grade or any other environmental sciences!

Very useful for science!!!
