Description

This volume offers analysis of large-scale tectonics and topography, examining the ways in which geophysical data and modelling can help to explain the development of large-scale landscape features.

"This is a timely book which should be read by all earth scientists." -- Geoscientist, October 2000

Texte du rabat

Ein sorgfältig recherchierter, ansprechend gestalteter Band, der Beiträge führender Spezialisten zur Beziehung zwischen Modellen tektonischer Prozesse und untersuchten Entwicklungen der Erdtopographie zusammenfaßt. Tabellen, Abbildungen und ein großer Farbtafel-Teil zeigen, wie geophysikalische Daten und Modelle zur Erklärung der Entstehung großräumiger Landschaftsmerkmale beitragen können. (06/98)



Résumé
Presents the state of current research on the inter-relationships between global tectonics and macroscale landscape development across a wide range of topics and study areas. The last 10 years have witnessed a remarkable growth in interest in the relationships between global tectonics and the Earth's maroscale topographic features.
