About this book

Morphotectonics, the relation between geomorphology and neotectonics is fundamental to the understanding of landscape evolution. Stressing mainly the quantitative interpretation of field observations, this monograph compares the morphological structure of drainage systems, river courses, glacial forms, volcanic landscapes and mass movements with joint orientations.


Part 1: Landscape Development; Phenomenological Principles; System Theory; Orientation Studies; Tectonic Features; Planar Morphological Features; Significance of Correlations.- Part 2: Europe; Asia; North America; Laurasian Arctic and Subarctic Regions; Gondwanaland; Africa; Peninsular India; Australasia; South America; Antarctic and Subantarctic Regions; The Oceans.- Part 3: Local Valley Morphology; Basins; Shore/Coast Lines; Inselbergs; Volcanic Features; Mass Movements on Slopes.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "Morphotectonics, the examination of the genetic relationships between topography and underlying tectonic or structural features within the crust, has been a rapidly developing field of the Earth sciences in recent years. ! The book has quite a good list of references and an index. ! In summary, this is a highly focused work ! . The work deserves a space in university libraries, and is more likely to be used as a reference source ! ." (Colin Murray-Wallace, Newsletter of the Geological Society of Australia, Issue 135, June, 2005) "The present volume is devoted to the concept that drainage patterns on Earth are largely controlled by bedrock joints that have been produced tectonically. This has been a favorite theme of his scholarship for many years, and this volume pulls together in a coherent presentation much of the earlier work that has been published bit by bit in journals. ! Extensive bibliography. An excellent guide. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (H. N. Pollack, Choice, Vol. 42 (3), 2004)
