Geomorphology is the scientific study of the origin and evolution of topographic and bathymetric landscapes. These landscapes are created by physical or chemical processes functioning at or around the earth’s surface. Geomorphologists search for to understand why landscapes look the way they do, to know landform history and dynamics and to envisage changes through an arrangement of field observations, physical experiments and numerical modeling. Geomorphology is accomplished within physical geography, engineering geology, geodesy, archaeology and geotechnical engineering. This book details on fundamentals of geomorphology and its elements.
