This highly successful review of techniques for studying the Earth's landforms has been thoroughly updated. Retaining the five-part structure of the first edition, the specialist contributors have augmented their original, authoritative coverage with critical evaluations of recent major improvements in this field. Contents: Part One: investigation methods and process determination; Part Two: geomorphology and mapping: Part Three: properties and measurements of materials. Part Four: processes, and Part Five: the history and evolution of landforms.
