The History of the Study of Landforms: Quaternary and recent processes and forms (1890-1965) and the mid-century revolutions

This book is the fourth volume in the definitive series, The History of the Study of Landforms or The Development of Geomorphology. Volume 1 (1964) dealt with contributions to the field up to 1890. Volume 2 (1973) dealt with the concepts and contributions of William Morris Davis. Volume 3 (1991) covered historical and regional themes during the 'classic' period of geomorphology, between 1980 and 1950. This volume concentrates on studies of geomorphological processes and Quaternary geomorphology, carrying on these themes into the second part of the twentieth century, since when process-based studies have become so dominant. It is divided into five sections. After chapters dealing with geological controls, there are three sections dealing with process and form: fluvial, glacial and other process domains. The final section covers the mid-century revolution, anticipating the onset of quantitative studies and dating techniques. The volume's objective is to describe and analyse many of the developments that provide a foundation for the rich and varied subject matter of contemporary geomorphology. The volume is in part a celebration of the late Professor Richard Chorley, who devised its structure and contributed a chapter.

If you would like to be able to undertake all the activities referred to in this book, it is recommended that you also purchase the Multimedia Activities Pack (Order Code S216/DVD/P3) and The Earth's Surface Poster Map (Order Code S103/MAP). This book looks at two topics in environmental science: Landforms - looks at the physical features of the Earth's land surface, where they occur, how they form and how they change. The development and evolution of landforms involves processes in the solid Earth (the geosphere), the atmosphere, the hydrosphere and the biosphere, which all interact with each other. The topic goes on to look in more detail at the processes which act to modify the geosphere. Cycles - considers the Earth as a whole, looking at the connections between the geosphere), the atmosphere, the hydrosphere and the biosphere, and how elements move between them. It examines the rock cycle, the biogeochemical cycle, the carbon cycle, the nitrogen cycle, and the sulphur and phosphorous cycles. Throughout the book there are questions and activities for the reader to engage with. Answers and explanations are provided at the end of each section.
