About this book

Landscapes and Landforms of Belgium and Luxembourg provides an informative and intriguing overview of the most scenic landscapes of Belgium and Luxembourg. Geodiversity is emphasized, for example the periglacial features in the Hautes Fagnes area, the planation surfaces in the Ardennes and Oesling, and the famous caves of Han/Lesse and Remouchamps. The book's chief goals are to provide the reader with enjoyable and informative descriptions of the selected sites within their regional geographical and geological settings; to offer an up-to-date survey of the evolution of Belgium's and Luxembourg's landscape; and to share additional information on the cultural value of the respective sites wherever appropriate. Landscapes and Landforms of Belgium and Luxembourg is a richly illustrated reference work that makes accessible for the first time a wealth of information currently scattered among many national and regional journals. It will benefit earth scientists, environmental scientists, tourism geographers and conservationists alike.

Biography

Alain Demoulin is Senior Research Associate of the FSR-FNRS (National Fund for Scientific Research) of Belgium and teaches Quaternary geology, morphotectonics and volcanism at the University of Liege, Belgium. His more than 35-year-long research activities in the field of Geomorphology saw him involved in studies about long-term geomorphology, geodetic monitoring of recent crustal movement, landslide hazard and, more recently, Quaternary drainage evolution, geomorphometry, and river incision response to tectonic perturbations. Besides main researches conducted in Belgium and NW Europe, he worked also in Argentina, Turkey, Greece, Italy.
