About this book

The Carpatho-Balkan Geomorphological Commission and the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric Regional Working Group, promotes networking between researchers and the exchange of research experience.

Following a brief introduction into the geology, climate, hydrology and land cover of the Carpatho-Balkan-Dinaric region, Recent Landform Evolution provides detailed information on research applying both traditional and innovative techniques and summarizes contemporary knowledge on recent geomorphic processes.

Recent Landform Evolution also presents studies of exogenic geomorphic processes from each country. The chapters on Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Macedonia examine the geomorphic processes in shaping the topography of each country.

Recent Landform Evolution also examines key geomorphic processes influencing land use and economic activities as well as contributions discussing processes under climate change.
