Himalaya to the Sea: Geology, Geomorphology and the Quaternary

J. Shroder Jr. ,"Himalaya to the Sea"
Routledge | 1993-12-27 | ISBN: 0415066484 | PDF | Pages: 472 | 12.4MB

Plate tectonic collision, climate oscillation, glacial fluctuation, severe wind and water erosion - all have wrought dramatic change on the landscape of the Western Himalaya, one of the most dynamic and spectacular landscapes on Earth. Study of the region - from the Western Himalaya foothills and lowlands to the Arabian Sea - is of particular value to geology and geomorphology because of the size and frequency of events. That much of South Asia is relatively inaccessible has enhanced the significance of research in Pakistan and adjacent areas. Himalaya to the Sea focuses on the general evolution of landforms in Pakistan but is also an essential guide for predictive, protective and remedial measures to mitigate the natural hazards which plague the region and constrain development. The authors describe regional erosion and sedimentation within the context of topographical evolution; more specifically, they deal with neotectonics, past and present glaciation, general mountain geomorphology and process mechanics, past and present fluvial processes and landforms, wind blown loess deposits, age dates, soils, marine terraces and archaeology. This is the first integrated assessment of the geomorphology and Quaternary evolution of this region, from highlands to ocean. Presenting new research, methodologies and theory, this highly illustrated book also provides the first comprehensive bibliography to this exciting region.

The Geomorphology of Desert Dunes

Nicho Lancaster,"The Geomorphology of Desert Dunes"
Routledge | 1995-10-18 | ISBN: 0415060931 | PDF | Pages: 312 | 13.8MB

Sand dunes cover up to a quarter of many desert regions. Understanding the factors that determine their shape, size and dynamics is important to an understanding of many aspects of the geomorphology and ecology of desert regions, as well as to resource management in these areas.
This book offers a comprehensive understanding of how desert dunes are formed, how they change and their environmental importance. Analyzing dune types, patterns, sand seas and sediments, and dune dynamics and processes at different temporal and spatial scales, the author draws on extensive research from the deserts of South Africa, North America, India, Northern Europe and Australia.
Investigating the role of climatic change, The Geomorphology of Desert Dunes concludes that a better understanding of dune processes and dynamics is vital for effective and appropriate mitigation of environmental problems in arid regions.

Geomorphology and River Management

Gary Brierley, Kirstie Fryirs,"Geomorphology and River Management"
Wiley-Blackwell | 2005-02-18 | ISBN: 1405115165 | PDF | 416 Pages | 24.1mb

This book outlines a generic set of procedures, termed the River Styles Framework, which provides a set of tools for interpreting river character, behavior, condition, and recovery potential. Applications of the framework generate a coherent package of geomorphic information, providing a physical template for river rehabilitation activities. management and restoration of rivers is a rapidly growing topic for environmental scientists, geologists and ecologists - this book provides a learning tool with which to approach geomorphic applications to river management
describes the essential geomorphological principles underlying river behaviour and evolution
demonstrates how the River Styles Framework can turn geomorphic theory into practice, to develop workable strategies for restoration and management based on real case studies and authors extensive experience
applicable to river systems worldwide synthesises fluvial geomorphology, ecology and management
