Time is a central feature of geomorphological research, and is used in this book (first published in 1977) to provide a conceptual framework within which to consider and compare old and new approaches to the field of geomorphology. The emphasis is on providing not merely a manual of current research but an introduction to isolate ideas and concepts, stimulate critical discussion and examine some of the problems that are involved in dealing with data.
