The dictionary of physical geography by David S. G Thomas( Book )

32 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The third edition of this comprehensive dictionary covers the whole field of physical geography and provides an essential reference for students and lecturers. This edition has been substantially updated with the help of an advisory board of international experts in a range of key areas in physical geography. Many of the entries are new or have been fully revised, with a large amount of additional material on relevant new themes and topics." "The Dictionary includes coverage of geomorphology, climatology, biogeography, zoogeography, hydrology, pedology, the Quarternary, GIS, remote sensing and the human impact. It contains over 2,000 entries ranging in length from succinct definitions of technical terms to extended discussions of concepts and essays on themes of particular interest or importance. The Dictionary reflects changes within the discipline and provides an international perspective on the key topics of physical geography. The entries are self-contained or cross-referenced with additional reading and references for those who wish to develop themes further."--Jacket
Encyclopedia of geomorphology by Andrew Goudie( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first such reference work in thirty-five years, this is a comprehensive guide to both specific landforms and the major types of processes that create them. This two-volume set provides a historical overview of the field, while exploring recent key discoveries about tectonic and climatic changes as well as the use of new techniques such as modeling, remote sensing, and process measurement. Written by a team of expert contributors from over thirty countries, the nearly 700 alphabetically arranged entries are cross-referenced, indexed, and include up-to-date suggestions for further reading. Fully illustrated with over 360 tables and illustrations, this will be the definitive reference source for students, researchers, and practitioners in geomorphology as well as geography, earth science, sedimentology, and environmental science
Global environments through the Quaternary : exploring environmental change by David Anderson( Book )

23 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Global Environments through the Quaternary delves into the environmental changes that have taken place during the Quaternary: the two to three million years during which man has inhabited the Earth. Taking the reader through the Pleistocene and the Holocene, the book describes the evidence that has helped us to characterize environmental changes during these two epochs. It then explores the changes captured by more recent meteorological records in the period up to the present day. Current climate change research foretells of potentially catastrophic sea-level changes in the future; chapter seven examines sea-level changes throughout the Quaternary, putting current concerns into perspective. The book closes with a look at the environmental basis of climate change - and the impact of human activity upon it."--Jacket
Desert geomorphology by Ronald U Cooke( Book )

36 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physical geography of Africa by William Mansfield Adams( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 500 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
The warm desert environment by Andrew Goudie( Book )

10 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 459 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 )

17 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 304 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
