9780415567756: Fundamentals of Geomorphology (Routledge Fundamentals of Physical Geography)

This extensively revised, restructured, and updated edition continues to present an engaging and comprehensive introduction to the subject, exploring the world’s landforms from a broad systems perspective. It covers the basics of Earth surface forms and processes, while reflecting on the latest developments in the field. Fundamentals of Geomorphology begins with a consideration of the nature of geomorphology, process and form, history, and geomorphic systems, and moves on to discuss:

  • structure: structural landforms associated with plate tectonics and those associated with volcanoes, impact craters, and folds, faults, and joints
  • process and form: landforms resulting from, or influenced by, the exogenic agencies of weathering, running water, flowing ice and meltwater, ground ice and frost, the wind, and the sea; landforms developed on limestone; and landscape evolution, a discussion of ancient landforms, including palaeosurfaces, stagnant landscape features, and evolutionary aspects of landscape change.

This third edition has been fully updated to include a clearer initial explanation of the nature of geomorphology, of land surface process and form, and of land-surface change over different timescales. The text has been restructured to incorporate information on geomorphic materials and processes at more suitable points in the book. Finally, historical geomorphology has been integrated throughout the text to reflect the importance of history in all aspects of geomorphology.

Fundamentals of Geomorphology provides a stimulating and innovative perspective on the key topics and debates within the field of geomorphology. Written in an accessible and lively manner, it includes guides to further reading, chapter summaries, and an extensive glossary of key terms. The book is also illustrated throughout with over 200 informative diagrams and attractive photographs, all in colour.

About the Author:

Richard John Huggett is a Reader in Physical Geography at the University of Manchester.

Review:

"The new edition retains the advantages of the old - a concise yet meaty presentation of fundamental geomorphic concepts - with new material and organization that enhance the user-friendliness. No other text integrates as well the historical and process approaches to geomorphology, and does as much justice to both cutting-edge and classical theoretical notions."  Jonathan D. Phillips, Professor, University of Kentucky, USA.

"In this third edition, Richard J. Huggett presents a very sensible, wide-ranging, well-illustrated, comprehensive and modern treatment of the subject which should continue to be attractive for introductory undergraduate courses in Geomorphology. It is almost certainly the best available text at this level."  Andrew Goudie, Emeritus Professor in Geography, University of Oxford, UK.

'This is a highly engaging, readable and clearly illustrated text that provides an excellent foundation to the fundamental principals of geomorphology. Students will undoubtedly benefit from the balanced way in which geological and geomorphological processes and landforms are integrated within a systems framework.'Paul Brewer, University of Wales, Aberystwyth 

'This stimulating book captures the essence of geomorphology. It lucidly intregrates structure, process, form and history of the Earth’s land surface into a concise text that is ideal for students.'Julian Murton, Department of Geography, University of Sussex, UK
