Product Overview

This book explores how landscapes respond to tectonic deformation.Including much previously unpublished research and theory, Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains uses new approaches to enhance theoretical models of landscape evolution and to solve practical problems such as the assessment of earthquake hazards. Readers will learn how to use key landforms as reference levels in changing landscapes, estimate rates of mountain-range uplift, and map seismic shaking caused by prehistorical earthquakes.Examples from around the world have been selected to illustrate diversity, from the humid Southern Alps of New Zealand with phenomenal rates of uplift and erosion to the semi-arid Panamint Range of southeastern California with so little annual stream power that tectonic landforms persist for millions of years.With a balance of theory and practical applications, Tectonic Geomorphology of Mountains is essential reading for research geologists and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in the earth sciences.
