ABOUT THE BOOK

Geomorphology is an eclectic subject, drawing from geology, physical geography, soils and atmospheric sciences, civil and environmental engineering, and still other fields. The third edition of Bloom's outstanding, classroom-tested text reflects the diversity of geomorphology, synthesizing its principles to make them accessible to students and practitioners from all disciplines. Bloom covers all of the major constructional and erosional processes of landform creation and change with separate sections devoted to glaciation and coastal geomorphology. Each set of processes and the resulting landforms are explained in a separate chapter, providing a comprehensive, nonmathematical overview. Profuse examples and illustrations represent landforms from around the world, avoiding the regionalism pervading other texts in the field.
