Describes long-term landscape development, which integrates tectonic and denundation processes. Areas covered include the British Isles, NW Europe, the Mediterranean Basin, Middle East, Himalayas, Andes and Antarctica. An introductory chapter reviews the history of ideas on landscape change and emphasises the need for collaborative research by geologists and geomorphologists. This is an interdisciplinary text which brings together research into landscape and tectonic processes. It also questions the current concentration in geology and geomorphology on short-term process studies and advocates a revision of ideas on landscape change.
