Written by experts, this is the first book that truly covers the topic of engineering geomorphology as a distinct discipline. The book delineates the basic concepts that underpin efforts to explain the causes, mechanisms, and consequences of landform change. It then considers how the land surface works in the context of wetland, flatland, hills, mountains, rivers and coasts, and the techniques that are available to the engineering geomorphologist in the field, in the laboratory, in the office, and in the various forms of remote sensing. Each succinct chapter is packed with vital information, well-illustrated with diagrams and tables and fully referenced so that the detail of subject matter can be followed up.
