Commissioned by the InternationalGeographical Union, this work is the first to document different fieldmethodologies in geomorphology. The contributors are internationallyknown geomorphologists from Canada, the United States, the UnitedKingdom, and Japan. They review methods, global coverage, and advancesin understanding while at the same time promoting a more dynamic, morerelevant, and more applied science of earth surface change -- thegeomorphological aspects of global change.
