About this book

Soil formation is related to the nature of landforms on which that formation takes place. The nature of the soil affects some of the processes shaping the landforms and which cause landscape change. An accurate assessment of the evolution of landforms and of the patterns of soil formation is possible only if the interdependence of soils and landforms is recognized. This book provides an integration of geomorphology and pedology to fully assess this relationship. After an opening chapter outlining the approach adopted, specific chapters examine the relationships between soil formation and specific suites of landform assemblages. The highly influential catena concept is followed by an analysis of soil within drainage basins, on erosion surfaces, flood plains, river terraces, coastal plains, glacial and fluvioglacial landforms, deserts and periglacial landforms. The concluding chapter addresses the way in which soils can be used to assess major phases in landscape evolution. Undergraduate students and lecturers in geography or soil sciences will find this a valuable interdisciplinary introduction to soil geomorphology.
