"There are other dictionaries available, but they do not have the breadth of information that this

Dictionary contains, with the additional tables, charts, reading and companion website. The

Dictionary of Physical Geography is a good general resource for multiple levels of researchers at the

university level. It is clear, concise and easy to use and follow. Users will be able to find definitions

for various terms, links or resources to other help and quickly move on to other research"
