Book description

How will global environmental change affect the landscape and our interaction with it? Apart from climate change, there are other important catalysts of landscape change, including relief, hydroclimate and runoff, sea level variations and human activity. This volume summarises the geomorphic implications of global environmental change, analysing such effects on lakes, rivers, coasts, reefs, rainforests, savannas, deserts, glacial features, and mountains. Providing a benchmark statement from the world's leading geomorphologists on the state of, and potential changes to, the environment, this book is invaluable for advanced courses on geomorphology and environmental science, and as a reference for research scientists. Interdisciplinary in scope, with a primary audience of Earth and environmental scientists, geographers, geomorphologists and ecologists, it also has a wider reach to those concerned with the social, economic and political issues raised by global environmental change, and is useful to policy makers and environmental managers.

Reviews

Review of the hardback:'I highly recommend this volume to any geoscientist interested in the present and future of our planet …'

Review of the hardback:'… a benchmark text for its subject and it highlights a topic that is of critical importance for humankind.'

Source: The Holocene

‘… I would like to specifically commend the reconstructions of ice sheets in the chapter on ice sheets and ice caps. There are also many good conceptual model diagrams. Overall, this is a really good reference work. It should have a place on the shelves of most practising geomorphologists and graduate students.’
