About this book

Physical landscapes are one of the most fascinating facets of the Planet and tell stories about the evolution of the surface of the Earth. This book provides up-to-date information about the geomorphology of the selected classic sites from around the world and shows the variety of geomorphological landscapes as moulded by different sets of processes acting over different timescales, from millions of years to days.

The volume is written by nearly fifty geomorphologists from more than twenty countries who for many years have researched some of the unique sceneries on the planet. The thirty seven chapters present each continent of the world. They describe landscapes of different origin, so that the reader can learn about the complexity of processes behind the scenes.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "The book is to present the most spectacular geomorphological landscapes in the world. ! This book is extremely useful ! . It is an excellent source of information ! among the geomorphological community, but also among a wider earth-scientific readership, as well as among travellers and tourists; it should also find its way to the shelves of schools and university students. ! Readers from many countries will now wish that a comparable book will be published describing the geomorphological landscapes of their own country." (Zbigniew ZwoliA ski, Geologos, Vol. 17 (1), 2011)
