Landscape Evolution: Denudation, Climate and Tectonics over by K. Gallagher, S. J. Jones, J. Wainwright

By K. Gallagher, S. J. Jones, J. Wainwright

The morphology of Earth's floor displays the interplay of weather, tectonics and denudational methods working over quite a lot of spatial and temporal scales. those approaches should be thought of catastrophic or non-stop; looking on the timescale of remark or curiosity. fresh learn had required integration of traditionally certain matters equivalent to geomorphology, sedimentology, climatology and tectonics. jointly, those have supplied new insights into absolute and relative premiums of denudation, and the criteria that keep an eye on the numerous dynamic techniques concerned. particular topic components lined are sediment shipping procedures and the timescales of competing methods, the function of the geological checklist and landscapes in constraining diversified techniques, the character of panorama evolution at diverse spatial scales and in contrasting geological environments.Also to be had: Coastal and Shelf Sediment delivery - ISBN 186239217X Alluvial fanatics: Geomorphology, Sedimentology, Dynamics - ISBN 1862391890 Submarine Slope platforms - ISBN 1862391777The Geological Society of LondonFounded in 1807, the Geological Society of London is the oldest geological society on this planet, and one of many biggest publishers within the Earth sciences.The Society publishes a variety of top quality peer-reviewed titles for lecturers and execs operating within the geosciences, and enjoys an enviable foreign popularity for the standard of its work.The many components during which we put up in include:-Petroleum geology-Tectonics, structural geology and geodynamics-Stratigraphy, sedimentology and paleontology-Volcanology, magmatic reviews and geochemistry-Remote sensing-History of geology-Regional geology publications
