The Earth's natural forces by K. J Gregory( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A profusely illustrated volume in The Illustrated Encyclopedia of World Geography series, this work surveys the Earth's regions and describes the geographical forces, climate, and natural phenomena (e.g., hurricanes) that created and modified the Earth's surface. Color maps depict the land, showing topographical features, and color photographs display the results of natural forces. Suggested for high schools
Drainage basin form and process : a geomorphological approach by K. J Gregory( Book )

The nature of physical geography by K. J Gregory( Book )

27 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and Russian and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interest in physical geography has increased as the discipline has diversified with greater consideration given to its approach and its philosophy; at the same time there have been benefits from advances in technology. The subject has seen many changes since the impact of quantification and systems, with emphases upon environmental processes landscape evolution and chronology and the significance of human activity as well as applications of physical geography. The Changing Nature of Physical Geography presents a review of progress in this discipline providing an understanding of how it has evolved; introducing its research and technical literature; and outlining the contributions of the physical geographers who have shaped the study of physical geography."--Jacket

Geomorphological processes by Edward D Derbyshire( Book )

25 editions published between 1979 and 1981 in English and Spanish and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geomorphological Processes describes land forms and land form changes, particularly regarding the rates of operation of these events. This book describes the mechanics of the geomorphological processes; the text also shows the application of an equation to explain trends in geomorphology that involves land forms (or results, a dependent variable), processes, and materials (both independent variables). The authors explain endogenetic and exogenetic processes, as well as the control systems approach. They explain the drainage basin processes which collect, concentrate, and promote water mobilit

River channel management : towards sustainable catchment hydrosystems by Peter W Downs( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"River Channel Management is the first book to deal comprehensively with recent revolutions in river channel management. It explores the multi-disciplinary nature of river channel management in relation to modern management techniques that consider the background of the entire drainage basin, use channel restoration where appropriate, and are designed to be sustainable."--Jacket
Palaeohydrology in practice : a river basin analysis by International Geological Correlation Programme( Book )

10 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palaeohydrology and environmental change( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paleohydrology is the study of how the composition, distribution, and movement of water many have influenced environmental change over time. Using in-depth case studies from North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, this book explores paleohydrological reconstruction and its implications on past and future environmental change
Palaeohydrology : understanding global change by K. J Gregory( Book )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Palaeohydrology includes studies of how the composition, distribution and movement of water on the land surface of the earth over the last 20,000 years has related to past environmental changes. Investigations provide information about the way that hydrology, and in particular, flood discharges, have changed in the past. They also show long-term hydrological trends and their implications for future changes. Past hydroclimate reconstructions related to a variety of past climate and environmental change sequences are critical to understanding future potential changes. They can provide data sets for validating the response of climate models with which to predict future change. Key features of this book include: a world summary of our understanding of palaeohydrological changes. real world examples of past hydrological scenarios in Europe, America, Africa, Asia and Australia. a long-term perspective of impacts of global changes on the hydrological regime during the last 20,000 years. an associated website containing database, expanded bibliography and reports from international programmes. This book provides a general overview of global palaeohydrology and includes an up to date review of key methodological approaches involved in palaeohydrological construction. The first section provides a global review of palaeohydrology by focusing on major regions of the world. It shows how and why hydrological regimes have changed, and how this knowledge can help in understanding global change. The second section focuses on key methodologies for fluvial palaeohydrology, concerning use of sediment-landform assemblage and hydraulic approaches as well as hydrological methods for palaeohydrological reconstruction. This book will be of use to researchers in fluvial geomorphology, hydrology and sedimentology, as well as professional hydrologists, sedimentologists, palaeocologists, Quaternary scientists and environmental consultants. It will make a good reference book for 2nd/3rd year undergraduates taking courses in Applied Hydrology, Global Change, Environmental Geology, Fluvial Geomorphology, Sedimentology within Departments of Geography, Environmental Science and Geology
Global continental changes : the context of palaeohydrology by J Branson( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palaeohydrology is the study of changes in the waters of the Earth prior to continuous monitoring. Knowledge of these changes is important for the understanding of past and present environmental changes and of the form of the present-day environment. This volume is designed for all who are interested in the hydrological impacts of climatic change and the contribution that palaeohydrology can make to the study of these changes. It details recent achievements in this important field, and provides for prioritising and guiding future studies
