Summary

The prime purpose of this book is to provide undergraduate students with an introductory understanding of process mechanics and how process leads to the genesis of landforms.
In addition to historical concerns, today's geomorphologist must relate to problems that face hydrologists, engineers, geologists, pedologists, foresters, and many other types of earth scientists. The bond that unites geomorphology with so many apparently diverse disciplines is the common need to understand the processes operating within the Earth's surficial systems. Thus, although the historical aspect of landscapes remains important, it is absolutely essential for earth scientists to have a basic understanding of surface mechanics.

New to This Edition

  • A wealth of new information concerning surficial process has emerged since the last edition, and many new techniques to analyze processes have been developed. In most chapters new data and interpretations have been included.
  • There is a growing interest in the role of climate and how it impacts and is impacted by geologic processes. Coverage of this topic has been greatly expanded in the 4th edition.

Features

  • Environmental applications and problems as they pertain to geomorphology continue to be discussed and analyzed.
