9781429238601: Key Concepts in Geomorphology

Written for introductory geomorphology courses, Key Concepts in Geomorphology offers an integrative, applications-centered approach to the study of the Earth’s dynamic surface. Bierman and Montgomery draw from the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics to help students get a basic understanding of Earth surface processes and the evolution of topography over short and long timescales. The authors also hone in on practical applications, showing how scientists are using geomorphological research to tackle critical societal issues (natural disaster response, safer infrastructure, protecting species, and more).

Book Description W.H.Freeman Co Ltd, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Written for introductory geomorphology courses this textbook offers an integrative, applications-centred approach to the study of the Earth s dynamic surface. Bierman and Montgomery draw from the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, and mathematics to help students get a basic understanding of Earth surface processes and the evolution of topography over short and long timescales. The authors also hone in on practical applications, showing how scientists are using geomorphological research to tackle critical societal issues (natural disaster response, safer infrastructure, protecting species, and more). Exceptionally concise and community vetted, each chapter is focused specifically on key concepts and underlying principles rather than regional or local examples. The book s philosophy emerged from a National Academy of Sciences workshop on the future of the textbook and the table of contents was determined by over 60 geomorphologists gathered to identify core concepts and areas of common interest that future geomorphologists need to know.
