What were the landscapes of the past like? What will landscapes look like in the future?

Landscapes are all around us, but most of us know very little about how they have developed, what goes on in them, and how they react to changing climates, tectonics and human activities. Examining what landscape is, and how we use a range of ideas and techniques to study it, Andrew Goudie and Heather Viles demonstrate how geomorphologists have built on classic methods pioneered by some great 19th century scientists to examine our Earth.

Using examples from around the world, including New Zealand, the Tibetan Plateau, and the deserts of the Middle East, they examine some of the key controls on landscape today such as tectonics and climate, as well as humans and the living world. They also discuss some key 'landscape detectives' from the past, including Charles Darwin who did some important, but often overlooked, research on landscape.

Concluding with the cultural importance of landscape, and exploring how this has led to the conservation of much 'earth heritage', they delve into the future and look at how we can predict the response of landscapes to climate change in the future.

L'autore:

Heather Viles is a geographer working in the University of Oxford, who teaches geomorphology to undergraduates and masters' level students, and researches on biological influences on geomorphology and the weathering of rocks and building stones. She is currently carrying out research in the Drakensberg Mountains, South Africa, the Namib desert, ruined ancient monuments in England, and is trying to simulate the weathering of rocks on the planet Mars in the laboratory. Andrew Goudie is a Professor of Geography in the University of Oxford and Master of St Cross College. He has worked on many aspects of geomorphology including deserts, the effects of climate change, the links between geomorphology and archaeology, and the conservation of sites of geomorphological interest.

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione: new. Paperback. Landscapes are all around us, but most of us know very little about how they have developed, what goes on in them, and how they react to changing climates, tectonics, and human activities. Examining what landscape is, and how we use a range of ideas and techniques to study it, Andrew Goudie and Heather Viles demonstrate how scientists have built on classic methods—pioneered by the great researchers of the nineteenth century—to shed new light on our planet. Using examples from around the world, including New Zealand, the Tibetan Plateau, and the deserts of the Middle East, they examine some of the key controls on landscape today such as tectonics and climate, as well as humans and the living world. They also discuss some major "landscape detectives" from the past, including Charles Darwin, who did some important, but often overlooked, research on landscape. Concluding with the cultural importance of landscape, and exploring how this has led to the conservation of much "earth heritage," they delve into the future and look at how we can predict the response of landscapes to the projected climate change. Landscapes are all around us, but most of us know very little about how they have developed, what goes on in them, and how they react to changing climates, tectonics, and human activities. This Very Short Introduction discusses the key ideas and methods used to study and examine landscapes, and their importance in cultural terms.
