Processes, Products, and Cycles of Tectonic Geomorphology, Volume Six, focuses on the process of landscape evolution more than the qualitative landscape description that is commonly available in geomorphic texts. The emerging understanding of the linkage between the modified Davisian landscape cycles and Wilson tectonic cycles is enumerated to highlight how sustainable land-use planning and hazard mitigation can benefit from this integrative perspective of geomorphology. This book is intended for practitioners and advanced-level students of earth sciences.
  • Provides an integration of the principles and theories behind recent studies that integrate geomorphic studies in tectonic evaluations
  • Includes sections on the maturity of landscape evolution (geomorphic maturity) in anthropogenic land-use planning, sustainability and hazard zone assessment and management
  • Presents an easy-to-use reference book for students and researchers of the subject
