Introducing Geomorphology A Guide to Landforms and Processes

ISBN 9781906716325 
Geomorphology is the study of the earth’s landforms and the processes that made the landscape look the way it does today. What we see when we look at a scenic view is the result of the interplay of the forces that shape the earth’s surface. These operate on many different timescales and involve geological as well as climatic forces. Introducing Geomorphology provides a structured and easily accessible introduction to the science of geomorphology for those with an adult curiosity about the landscape and for those contemplating a course of formal study in physical geography, geology or environmental studies. As with sister volumes, technical terms are kept to a minimum and a glossary is provided. Professor Adrian Harvey taught undergraduate courses in geomorphology at the University of Liverpool. As sometime editor in chief a the leading academic journal in the field he is uniquely placed to condense his encyclopaedic knowledge of geomorphology into this introduction to the subject.
