World Geomorphology deals with the large-scale relief features of the earth and shows how these are related to the major segments of the earth's crust known as lithospheric plates. The aim of the book is to convey an understanding of the earth's major relief features and to present a subdivision of the earth's surface in provinces which have had similar geological or geomorphological history. The book starts by presenting the reader with the basic geological column and the means of subdividing the landscape into areas with a common origin and developmental history, and gives an explanation of the basic principles of plate tectonics. The continental and oceanic areas of each lithospheric plate are then described: successive chapters deal with the African, American, Antarctic, Asian, European and Pacific plates, indicating the regional geomorphological features after a brief geological introduction. This encyclopaedic volume will provide a valuable reference for students of geology and geography.

Here's what you say about us...

"The book is packed with factual information and is very concisely written."
Colin R. Thorne, Geology Magazine

"The principal value of World Geomorphology will be as a quick reference for university-level teachers and students on the influence of geologic factors on regional landforms for any location on Earth.
It will be useful in teaching regional geography courses where a reference is needed to generate more detailed background information on the physical setting.
When presenting remotely sensed imagery of regional landforms in the teaching of physical geography or geomorphology, World Geomorphology will serve as an interpretive aid."
Richard A. Marston, Journal of Geography
