N.K.P. Applied Geomorphology is divided into four sections: slopes & landslides, sediment transfer dynamics, hazards & risks, and coasts. It brings practical examples from around the world and shows how geomorphological evidence can help in effective land utilisation and hazard risk assessment.5/5(1).

Geomorphological research in the humid to seasonal tropics has primarily concentrated on the most characteristic landform assemblage of this zone, namely that of stepped, largely undissected etchplains, often dotted with inselbergs and cutting across ancient basement rocks. Although the author discusses extensively this subject, he puts particular emphasis on the differences of chemical.

Applied Geomorphology: Theory and Practice. Allison. John Wiley & Sons, - Science - pages. 0 Reviews. This is the first book to bring together practical examples from around the world to show how geomorphological evidence can help in effective land utilisation and hazard risk assessment.

Case studies provide important. Tropical Geomorphology is an ideal textbook for any course on tropical geomorphology or the tropical environment, and is also invaluable as a reference text for researchers and environmental managers in the tropics.

The book was first published in German in However, the present version is much more than a translation, encompassing a range of new ideas and findings in the field of tropical geomorphology.

The number of maps and illustrations has also been increased. The book is important to a broad spectrum of earth science interests including geotechnical and engineering studies, and soil science, as well as to students of geomorphology.

People working in the tropics will encounter the processes and products of tropical denudation systems, and the fragile nature of many of the surface materials discussed Author: Michael F.

GEOMORPHOLOGY AND GENERAL SYSTEMS THEORY During the past decade several valuable attempts have been made, notably by Strahler (,A, and B), by Culling (, by: The following topics among the current research trends are highlighted: geochemical erosion, movement on tropical slopes, rivers in the tropics, tropical landforms, hydrology and sedimentation in the rainforest, denudation efficiency in the humid tropics, the Quaternary evolution and changes, and the applied side of tropical geomorphology.

Geomorphology, 7 () Elsevier Science Publishers B.V., Amsterdam The changing geomorphology of the humid tropics Avijit Gupta Department of Geography, National University ofSingapore, Singapore (Received Janu ; accepted Febru ) ABSTRACT It is debatable whether tropical geomorphology is intrinsically different from the geomorphology of other Cited by: geomorphology, study of the origin and evolution of the earth's landforms, both on the continents and within the ocean basins.

It is concerned with the internal geologic processes of the earth's crust, such as tectonic activity and volcanism that constructs new landforms, as well as externally driven forces of wind, water, waves, and glacial ice that modify such landforms.

This publication provides a tropical perspective on geomorphology. The importance of weathering and the materials of the weathered mantle in determining the outcome of erosional processes is emphasised. There are 11 chapters entitled: (1) geomorphology from a tropical perspective; (2) the alteration of rocks under tropical conditions; (3) weathering profiles and saprolite; (4) laterites Cited by:   Although similar geomorphic processes take place in other regions, in the tropics these processes operate at different rates and with varying intensities.

Poleward of this region there is greater variation in the sun angle and consequently the greater variation in surface heating.

Introduction There is no general theory of geomorphology. We cannot cast the subject in a single equation, or set of equations. As with geology, geomorphology is a tangle of physics, chemistry, biology and history. It is also geometry, as the geomorphology plays out in a.
