Concise and informative, The Dictionary of Physical Geography is a must-have, as a useful first port-of-call for reference. Edited by the well-established physical geographers David Thomas and Andrew Goudie, the dictionary describes and explains physical features broached in the Earth Sciences, as well as exploring theories - both their historical debates and contemporary issues. Complete with tables, diagrams and photographs, each entry is supplemented by a list of 'recommended reading' and references, providing the user with key readings on each topic. Cross-references are capitalised, enabling one to easily locate related subject-matter within the dictionary.
My only qualm with the book is that some entries are a little too brief and as such, prior knowledge of terminology is required.

I study geography at Bristol (1st year) and found it very useful for revision and for understanding the lectures.
was perfect for essays as it was the best place to start looking for references.

This is a good buy for the physical geographer whether doing A-levels or a Uni student like myself.

Its a good constant addition to any reference list, the explanations are generally pretty good, worth the money in my opinion, i use it on a daily basis.
