Tracers in Geomorphology is the first book which contains a state–of–the–art review of the use of tracer technologies for coarse and fine sediment transport in a range of geomorphological environments and over a range of time–scales. It is divided into six sections; background and recent developments, atmospheric and hydrological tracers, tracers for investigating soil erosion and hill–slope processes, tracing fluvial sediments, tracers for coastal transport studies and tracers in palaeoenvironmental investigations.
Authored by international experts in their field, this book will be of enormous value to postgraduates, researchers and professionals in the fields of geomorphology, hydrology, environmental, earth and soil science, coastal and catchment management.
