This book advances a typology of experimentation in the field science of geomorphology -- the study of the form of the earth's surface and the evolution of its relief. Commissioned by the International Geographical Union, this work is the first to document different field methodologies in geomorphology. The contributors are internationally known geomorphologists from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan. They review methods, global coverage, and advances in understanding while at the same time promoting a more dynamic, more relevant, and more applied science of earth surface change -- the geomorphological aspects of global change.
Olav Slaymaker (editor) is a professor and head of the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia.
... the book is a gold mine for experimental geomorphology and its high price should not keep professional geomorphologists from buying the book.
The well-prepared and well-edited text is illustrated with excellent line drawings and photographs.
