Summary

Geomorphology concerns the forms of the land's surface and the processes that create them. It is an integral part of studies in physical geography and also has significant bearing on geology and engineering. Since the nineteenth century, many systems of classifying landforms have been devised and this has led to recognized areas of specialist study, most notably fluvial, slope, coastal, glacial and periglacial, arid lands and landscape evolution.
This collection makes available, in one place, key published material on each of these areas of geomorphology, and constitutes an instant archive of essential benchmark papers. By drawing together classic as well as more contemporary material, each volume provides an overview of each field and its development as well as a sense of where current debates are leading. The set as a whole provides representative coverage of the changing perspectives in the study of geomorphology over the past 100 years.
The papers have been chosen by specialist editors working with the general editor, David J. A. Evans, and include introductions to each volume to set the selection in its intellectual and historical context.
