Geomorphic Responses to Climatic Change
Climatic change and tectonics are two of the most intensively studied topics in geomorphology (and palaeontology) today. In this volume, the first of a companion pair of books, the response of landscapes to climatic change is discussed in the light of the author's research over the past decade. Professor Bull first presents conceptual models for changing landscapes, then tests and develops concepts in a topical approach, using as his base his extensive experience in the Middle East, western North America, and New Zealand.
