There have been significant developments in the discipline in recent decades, and these are reflected in this great encyclopedia broader, which publishes the first such reference work in this field for thirty-five years.
Encyclopedia of Geomorphology was developed in collaboration with the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) and has a truly global perspective. Contributions were written by an international editorial team from over 30 countries, all of which are among the leading experts in the field.
In two richly illustrated volumes, Encyclopedia contains nearly 700 alphabetically-organized entries that provide a comprehensive guide to both specific landforms and the major types of geomorphological processes that produce them. The Encyclopedia also highlights the major developments that have taken place in recent years in our knowledge of tectonic and climatic changes and the use of new modeling, remote sensing and process measurement techniques.
