Summary

Ritter's successful process mechanics approach and exceptional writing have been enhanced with a new visuals program and solid updating of the contents.

Increased coverage of environmental applications and problems as they pertain to geomorphology.

Increased, optional coverage of planetary geomorphology-most chapters have an end of chapter section where the authors compare and contrast the geomorphology of Earth with other planets in our solar system.

Other content revisions include a greater emphasis on tectonic geomorphology in chapter 2 and the new definition of the threshold concept in chapter 1.
