About this book

Geoheritage is the geological and geomorphological elements of nature worthy of being conserved. In most cases, it constitutes the skeleton of the landscape. The new interest of the scientific community in the geomorphological heritage (geomorphosites) prompted the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) to create in September 2001, at the 5th International Conference on Geomorphology held in Tokyo, a specific working group that aism to improve knowledge and scientific research on the definition, assessment, cartography, promotion and conservation of geomorphosites. During the last eight years, experiences were shared during workshops and international conferences and the main results were published in international journals.

This book proposes a synthesis of the research on the geomorphological heritage, both at the conceptual and methodological level. The results presented here are based on numerous studies carried out by various researchers in different contexts (academic research, environmental impact assessment, conservation, geotourism) and countries.
