Australian Landforms is concerned with general theories as applied to the problems posed by the Australian landscape. The book is devoted to the major factors of structure, process, and time, as well as the most recent geological period, called the Quaternary. Chapters deal with structural impacts on landform development, the work of water and rivers, of wind, ice and waves, the time factor, and the events and resultant forms associated with the climatic aberrations of the last two million years. Australian Landforms will interest those concerned with the physical landscape in the context of geology, geography, botany, zoology, ecology, environmental studies, and agricultural science, as well as travelers and others curious about the origins of the Australian landscape.
