By Christopher R. Burn (auth.), Piotr Migon (eds.)

Physical landscapes are probably the most interesting elements of our Planet, which inform tales concerning the evolution of the skin of the Earth. This booklet presents updated information regarding the geomorphology of the chosen ‘classic’ websites from around the globe and exhibits the diversity of geomorphological landscapes as moulded by means of diversified units of procedures appearing over assorted timescales, from hundreds of thousands of years to days. the quantity is written by means of approximately fifty geomorphologists from greater than twenty nations who for a few years have researched a few of the distinctive sceneries on this planet. The thirty six chapters current each one continent of the area. They describe landscapes of other starting place, in order that the reader can know about the complexity of procedures in the back of the sceneries.

This is an invaluable reference publication, linking geomorphology with international tasks excited about nature conservation.

Key themes:

Geomorphic processes





Nature conservation
