The physical geography of Africa by W. M Adams( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An International team of distinguished scholars have each contributed a chapter to produce an advanced, full-length, physical geography of Africa. The first chapters provide an overview of both pan-Africa patterns in the physical environment and those aspects of African physical geography that are distinctive, considering in particular the development of the main features through time. The authors review both Francophone and Anglophone literature, discuss the present state of knowledge, and set out the work and methods that have created it. This part of the book is followed by a group of chapters that provide an integrated analysis of geomorphology, biogeography, environmental change, and hydrology within each of the major biomes found in the African continent, forest, savanna, desert, coast, wetland, mountain, and Mediterranean environments. In the final group of chapters, various authors discuss the impact and significance of human activity on African environments. These chapters explore debates about soil erosion, desertification, biodiversity and depletion, and conservation and development. In this integrated physical geography, written in honour of the geographer A.T. Grove, the editors have produced a reference work which provides a new foundation for discussion of the physical geography of the continent of Africa. It should, therefore, prove of enduring value to all scholars and students of the physical geography of Africa and all who are interested in African environments and environmental change

Landscapes and geomorphology : a very short introduction by Andrew Goudie( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Landscapes are all around us, but most of us know very little about how they have developed, what goes on in them, and how they react to changing climates, tectonics, and human activities. Examining what landscape is, and how we use a range of ideas and techniques to study it, Andrew Goudie and Heather Viles demonstrate how scientists have built on classic methods - pioneered by the great researchers of the nineteenth century - to shed new light on our planet. Using examples from around the world, including New Zealand, the Tibetan Plateau, and the deserts of the Middle East, they examine some of the key controls on landscape today such as tectonics and climate, as well as humans and the living world. They also discuss some major "landscape detectives" from the past, including Charles Darwin, who did some important, but often overlooked, research on landscape. Concluding with the cultural importance of landscape, and exploring how this has led to the conservation of much "earth heritage," they delve into the future and look at how we can predict the response of landscapes to the projected climate change."--Pub. desc

Desert dust in the global system by Andrew Goudie( Book )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dust storms, produced by the removal of surface materials from the world's drylands, are a vital component of the environment. This is because of their role in biogeochemical cycling, their potential influence on climate, their role in sediment accumulation and their influence on human affairs. This book, which is exhaustively referenced, explores and summarises recent research on where dust storms originate, why dust storms are generated, where dust is transported and deposited, the nature of dust deposits and the changing frequency of dust storms over a range of time-scales."--Jacket

Landscapes and landforms of Namibia by Andrew Goudie( Book )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The landscapes of Namibia are of world-class quality in beauty, diversity and interest. This book provides the first ever overview of the most important of these landscapes, explains why they look as they do, and evaluates why they are of note. Writing from a geomorphological perspective, the authors introduce the key processes and controls which influence landscape and landform development in Namibia. Geological and tectonic background, climate now and in the past, vegetation and animals (including humans) are all identified as crucial factors influencing the landscape of Namibia today. The book presents twenty one richly-illustrated case studies of the most significant landscapes of Namibia, ranging from the iconic Etosha Pan at the heart of the biggest wildlife conservation area in the north, to the famous dunes and ephemeral river at Sossus Vlei in the heart of the Namib desert. Each case study also contains a full list of the key references to the scientific work on that landscape. The authors provide an assessment of the current state of conservation of these landscapes, and their importance to tourism. The book is recommended reading for anyone with a professional or amateur interest in the spectacular and intriguing landscapes of this part of southern Africa. It provides a useful handbook for those travelling around Namibia, and an invaluable reference guide for those interested in how landscapes develop and change
