What were the landscapes of the past like? What will landscapes look like in the future? Landscapes are all around us, but most of us know very little about how they have developed, what goes on in them, and how they react to changing climates, tectonics and human activities. Examining what landscape is, and how we use a range of ideas and techniques to study it, Andrew Goudie and Heather Viles demonstrate how geomorphologists have built on classic methods pioneered by some great 19th century scientists to examine our Earth. Using examples from around the world, including New Zealand, the Tibetan Plateau, and the deserts of the Middle East, they examine some of the key controls on landscape today such as tectonics and climate, as well as humans and the living world. They also discuss some key 'landscape detectives' from the past, including Charles Darwin who did some important, but often overlooked, research on landscape. Concluding with the cultural importance of landscape, and exploring how this has led to the conservation of much 'earth heritage', they delve into the future and look at how we can predict the response of landscapes to climate change in the future.

Modern Geography has come a long way from its roots in simply mapping and naming the regions of the world. Spanning both physical and human Geography, the discipline today is unique as a subject bridging the divide between the sciences and humanities, and between the environment and our society.

Das Buch beschreibt und erklärt die Entstehung und Veränderung der Oberflächenformen der Erde in allen zeitlichen und räumlichen Größenordnungen, vom ephemeren, nur wenige Millimeter großen Einschlagskrater eines Regentropfens im Sandboden bis zum Milliarden Jahre alten Kontinentalschild als Resultate der Wirkung endogener und exogener Prozesse, die im geomorphodynamischen System in vielfältiger Weise miteinander verbunden und rückgekoppelt sind. Ergebnisse der empirischen Forschung im Gelände werden mit theoretischen Modellen der Formenentwicklung verknüpft. Die 5. Auflage wurde vollständig überarbeitet, erweitert und aktualisiert, Qualität und Umfang der Abbildungen wurden erhöht.
