Field Techniques in Glaciology and Glacial Geomorphology is the first text to provide this essential information in a single comprehensive volume. Coverage includes: The role of field data acquisition in the broader disciplines of glaciology and glacial geomorphology ; Logistical preparations for fieldwork. The book begins with a consideration of the nature of geomorphology, process and form, history, and geomorphic systems, and moves on to discuss:Endogenic processes: structural landforms associated with plate tectonics and those associated with volcanoes, impact craters, and folds, faults, and joints.

The book focuses on pragmatic techniques that the authors have found useful in all forms of engineering investigation and is the logical continuation and development of the seminal and successful work, Geomorphology for Engineers. - Jonathan Phillips, University of Kentucky This student focused book provides a detailed description and analysis of the key concepts, ideas, and hypotheses that inform geomorphology. Kenneth Gregory and John Lewin explain the basics of landform science in 20 concepts, each the subject of a substantive, cross-referenced entry.

Fluvial Geomorphology studies the biophysical processes acting in rivers, and the sediment patterns and landforms resulting from them. It is a discipline of synthesis, with roots in geology, geography, and river engineering, and with strong interactions with allied fields such as ecology, engineering and landscape architecture. This book comprehensively reviews tools used in fluvial. The study of landforms is becoming increasingly scientific. This book, first published in , attempts to do justice to the work done in the last few decades, but strives to avoid a too uncritical acceptance of contemporary trends. The author first examines the fundamental characteristics and basic postulates of geomorphology.

The new fourth edition of Fundamentals of Geomorphology continues to provide a comprehensive introduction to the subject by discussing the latest developments in the field, as well as covering the basics of Earth surface forms and processes.

The revised edition has an improved logically cohesive structure, added recent material on Quaternary environments and.

The book should help unify and strengthen the disciplines by clarifying how geomorphology fits into the realm of the sciences, by examining its relationship to other sciences, by providing an improved understanding of methodological diversity in the discipline, and by identifying potential bases for disciplinary unity.

While integrating new insights and highlighting controversies from the ten years of research since the 1st edition, this 2nd edition of Tectonic Geomorphology reviews the fundamentals of the subject, including the nature of faulting and folding, the creation and use of geomorphic markers for tracing deformation, chronological techniques that.

Remote Sensing of Geomorphology, Vol discusses the new range of remote-sensing techniques (lidar, structure from motion photogrammetry, advanced satellite platforms) that has led to a dramatic increase in terrain information, and as such provided new opportunities for a better understanding of surface morphology and related Earth surface processes.

Recent advances in the quantification of rates and physical basis of tectonic and surface processes have rejuvenated the field of tectonic geomorphology.
