Klappentext
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. Many of the entries are new or have been fully revised, with a large amount of additional material on 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 2000 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 further reading and references for those who wish to develop themes further.
