Global Geomorphology - SUMMERFIELD, MichaelLongman, 1991, Paperback.
Condition: Very Good. A very lightly dog-eared copy.
The book develops an innovative approach to the study of landforms and presents the student with a comprehensive introduction which emphasizes large-scale processes and phenomena. It is the first textbook fully to integrate global tectonics into the study of landforms, and the first to incorporate planetary geomorphology as a major component. Other significant themes include the impact of climatic change and the role of rare, catastrophic events in landform genesis; the text also contains a comprehensive treatment of surface geomorphic processes. Satellite imagery is used throughout to illustrate large-scale landforms, and overall the book contains nearly 500 figures. First in this edition.
