Mapping Geomorphological Environments is a highly descriptive textbook providing an excellent introduction to the latest methodologies for mapping geomorphological formations in a variety of different environments.

Its holistic approach seeks to provide a meaningful linkage between state of the art techniques for geomorphological mapping, including the latest innovations in geospatial applications, and advances in the understanding of the formation of geomorphological phenomena in a variety of settings and environments.

The book includes: - An introduction to the processes which form geomorphological formations and how to map them. - Case studies from a variety of environments with many examples of geomorphological maps. - In-depth descriptions of the latest tools and methodologies such as field sampling, GPS usage, 3-4D mapping, GIS analysis, digital image analysis, etc. - A list of the geomorphological characteristics per environment (e.g. coastal, fluvial, etc.) in the format of a geomorphological encyclopaedia, with pictures, maps and symbols.

It covers the entire workflow ranging from data collection, analysis, interpretation, and mapping.

From the reviews: "This book by Pavlopoulos (Harokopian Univ. of Athens), Evelpidou (Univ. of Athens), and Vassilopoulos (GeoEnvironmental Institute, Athens) is a concise review of the techniques of geomorphological mapping, and the processes and features characteristic of certain geomorphic environments. ... In all, the line drawings and photos are very good. ... Upper-division undergraduates and above." (I. D. Sasowsky, Choice, Vol. 47 (5), January, 2010)
