The new edition of "Arid Zone Geomorphology" aims to encapsulate the advances that have been made in recent years in the investigation and explanation of landforms and geomorphological processes in drylands.
Building on the success of the previous two editions, the third edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field. The book has been restructured to include regional case studies throughout to enhance student understanding and is clearly defined into five distinct sections.
Firstly, the book introduces the reader to large scale controls and variability in drylands and then moves on to consider surface processes and characteristics; the work of water, the work of the wind. The book concludes with a section on living with dryland geomorphology that includes a chapter on geomorphological hazards and the human impact on these environments.
