9781577666691: Process Geomorphology

The prime purpose of this book is to provide undergraduate students with an introductory understanding of process mechanics and how process leads to the genesis of landforms. In addition to historical concerns, today's geomorphologist must relate to problems that face hydrologists, engineers, geologists, pedologists, foresters, and many other types of earth scientists. The bond that unites geomorphology with so many apparently diverse disciplines is the common need to understand the processes operating within the Earth's surficial systems. Thus, although the historical aspect of landscapes remains important, it is absolutely essential for earth scientists to have a basic understanding of surface mechanics.

Product Description:

Considering process geomorphology, this text includes coverage of: climate and internal forces; chemical weathering and soils; physical weathering, mass movement and slopes; the drainage basin; fluvial processes; fluvial landforms; wind processes and landforms; and glaciers and glacial mechanics.

From the Publisher:

Increased coverage of environmental applications and problems as they pertain to geomorphology.
Increased, optional coverage of planetary geomorphology-most chapters have an end of chapter section where the authors compare and contrast the geomorphology of Earth with other planets in our solar system.
Other content revisions include a greater emphasis on tectonic geomorphology in chapter 2 and the new definition of the threshold concept in chapter 1.
