About this book

Encyclopaedic survey, dealing with the large-scale relief features of the earth, showing how these relate to the major segments of the earth's crust, known as lithospheric plates.

The book is packed with factual information and is very concisely written. Colin R. Thorne, Geology Magazine "The principal value of World Geomorphology will be as a quick reference for university-level teachers and students on the influence of geologic factors on regional landforms for any location on Earth. It will be useful in teaching regional geography courses where a reference is needed to generate more detailed background information on the physical setting. When presenting remotely sensed imagery of regional landforms in the teaching of physical geography or geomorphology, World Geomorphology will serve as an interpretive aid." Richard A. Marston, Journal of Geography
