"Although this book does not provide a detailed manual of all the techniques which bear on environmental change, it does give a valuable introduction, and, more importantly, places this in the context of the longer-term interactions."
Mike Kirkby, The Holocene, April 2002
- First text to take a broad interdisciplinary approach: integrated geomorphology, geophysics, and paleoclimatology.
- Includes the latest technological advances used in dating: Uranium series and dating and observation.
- Emphasizes the role of surface processes.
- Focuses on landscapes at different time scales.
- Provides strong coverage on numerical modeling of tectonically active landscapes.
- Presents the recent approaches to calibrating rates of uplift and erosion.
- Stresses the tectonics of active plate margins in a detailed yet succinct way.
- Contains "Chapter introductions," "Chapter summaries," and "References" that reinforce principles and theory as well as provide additional background information.
