Summary:
Processes, Products, and Cycles of Tectonic Geomorphology is the fourth volume in a reference series. The book 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. Integration of the principles and theories behind recent studies that integrate geomorphic studies in tectonic evaluations Importance on the maturity of landscape evolution (geomorphic maturity) in anthropogenic land-use planning and sustainability, and hazard zone assessment and management is highlighted through practical case-studies and theoretical explanations Easy to use reference book for students and researchers of the subject
