Tectonic geomorphology is the study of the interplay betweentectonic and surface processes that shape the landscape in regionsof active deformation and at time scales ranging from days tomillions of years.  Over the past decade, recent advances inthe quantification of both rates and the physical basis of tectonicand surface processes have underpinned an explosion of new researchin the field of tectonic geomorphology. Modern tectonicgeomorphology is an exceptionally integrative field that utilizestechniques and data derived from studies of geomorphology,seismology, geochronology, structure, geodesy, stratigraphy,meteorology and Quaternary science. While integrating new insightsand highlighting controversies from the ten years of research sincethe 1st edition, this 2nd edition ofTectonic Geomorphology reviews the fundamentals of thesubject, including the nature of faulting and folding, the creationand use of geomorphic markers for tracing deformation,chronological techniques that are used to date events and quantifyrates, geodetic techniques for defining recent deformation, andpaleoseismologic approaches to calibrate past deformation.

 

Overall, this book focuses on the current understanding of thedynamic interplay between surface processes and active tectonics.As it ranges from the timescales of individual earthquakes to thegrowth and decay of mountain belts, this book provides a timelysynthesis of modern research for upper-level undergraduate andgraduate earth science students and for practicing geologists.

About the Author:

Douglas Burbank is a tectonic geomorphologist whoinvestigates the growth of mountains and evolution of landscapesprimarily in collisional mountain belts, ranging from NewZealand’s Southern Alps to the Tien Shan and the Andes. He has focused on interactions among mountain building, erosion,climate, and deposition at time scales ranging from decades tomillions of years.

Robert Anderson is a geomorphologist who has studied theprocesses responsible for shaping many landscapes.  Theseinclude several tectonically active mountain ranges, from theHimalayas to Alaska.  He has been involved deeply in thedevelopment of methods to extract timing from landscapes, focusingon the use of cosmogenic radionuclides, and consistently employsnumerical models in his work.

Review:

“Finally, it is worth mentioning that, unusually, this book comes with an electronic supplement readily available on the web that includes all figures, plates, and tables to be used in lectures by anyone, making this book a must-have for anyone teaching tectonic geomorphology or interested in this topic. Kodama intelligently summarizes achievements in the field of sedimentary paleomagnetism, where he also plays an important role.”  (Pure Appl. Geophys, 1 January 2015)

“In summary, Tectonic Geomorphology is a nicely written, finely illustrated, rich and, above all, thought provoking textbook. I believe it will be extremely useful not only for graduate students, but also for those more mature scientists who left school before the onset of what I consider the most exciting advancement in the Earth Sciences after Plate Tectonics.”  (J Seismol, 1 March 2013)

“This is an excellent second edition of Tectonic Geomorphology and is highly recommended to geologists and geomorphologists with an interest in neotectonics and landscape evolution.”  (Geological Journal, 29 January 2014)

“In summary, Tectonic Geomorphology is a well-thought-out and well-executed text that well serves teaching of the subject at graduate and upper levels, and it provides a valuable reference for practicing geologists.”  (Environmental & Engineering Geoscience, 2 May 2013)

“This is definitely a book worth taking a look at by any member; and one worth trying hard to come to terms with if aspects of this important subject really interest you.”  (Open University Geological Society Journal, 1 November 2012)

“Notwithstanding this, I strongly recommend to have ’Tectonic Geomorphology’ on one’s bookshelf. It will be of particular value to the young generation of  geoscientists, wondering which research direction to go. They will get first-class food-for-thought.” (Geologos, 2012)
