Earth's Changing Surface: An Introduction to Geomorphology
by M. J. Selby
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198232519, Paperback)Geomorphologists have recently switched their attention from the processes that create land forms on a small scale to far broader processes involving tectonic and climatic changes on a global scale. This is the first comprehensive textbook to take account of these long-term changes. It covers the fundamental principles of geomorphology and is divided into three parts: the nature and structure of earth's major physical features and the results of tectonism; the processes of weathering, erosion, and deposition which create land forms; and the major bioclimatic zones of the earth, with their complexes of relict and modern land forms resulting from the numerous climatic variations of late Cenozoic time.
