About this book

This guide investigates how geomorphologists have built on classic methods pioneered by some great 19th century scientists to examine the Earth. Using examples from around the world, including New Zealand, the Tibetan Plateau and the deserts of the Middle East, the authors examine some of the key controls on landscape today such as tectonics and climate, as well as humans and the living world.
