Xx, 443,  pages, well illustrated (some in color) , diagrams, cloth, DJ, very good. Translated from the German by Lenore Fischer and Detlef Busche. Translation of: Klima-Geomorphologie. From the dust jacket: "A summation of the lifework of one of the century's greatest geomorphologists and the first major piece of Budel's writing to be translated into English, this volume offers a theory of the influence of climate on the earth's relief system and an analysis of past climate changes, particularly as they affected landscapes such as western Europe and the eastern United States." From the Encyclopedia Britannica: "Morphogenetic classification was first proposed by Julius Büdel, the German geographer, in 1945. The morphogenetic concept asserts that, under a particular climatic regime, certain geomorphic processes will predominate and produce a characteristic topographic expression. Proponents of the concept say that climatic controls outweigh rock type as a landform factor because the resistance of a rock type to erosion is dependent on the climate to which it is subjected.
