Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

This book includes both basic material for students without a great deal of background in geology as well as more advanced topics. With coverage that reaches beyond the study of surface processes, it contains discussions on the evolution of landforms and interpretation of their origin. The Second Edition reflects the increasing relevance of geomorphology to environmental concerns and the additional emphasis this has placed on more applied aspects of the field. Also considered is the revolution of the discipline brought on by many rapidly-evolving tools, such as computers, sophisticated electronic measuring devices, lasers, mass spectrometers, new methods of dating landforms and deposits, and others.

Book News Annotation:

An undergraduate textbook on geomorphology that includes basic information for students with no background in geology and who perhaps intend to use the knowledge in another field such as ecology or waste management, and more advanced material for students at the senior level who have already dug themselves into the discipline. Explains such aspects as weathering, fluvial processes, the topographic expression of folded strata, quaternary climatic changes and the ice ages, and dating geomorphic features. Includes a glossary without pronunciation. First published in 1993. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
