Book Description

This book, first published in 1985, conveys the flavours of geomorphology and the bases of its ideas. It portrays the positive features of pluralism in geomorphology, and focuses on processes operative and their associated landforms; the distinctive geological settings of karst, volcanicity and tectonic activity; and technological advances.
