      The topics covered are relevant to basic geomorphology as well as applied approaches in environmental and cultural geomorphology. The book integrates a physical-human approach to geography, but focuses on physical geography and geomorphology from an integrated field-based geoscience perspective. Knowledge has no limits and everyone has the opportunity to gain it and expand the view and horizon of understanding. Nothing in this world remains permanent, everything changes. Hence the field of morphology of the Earth (geomorphology) provides a basis for exploring, understanding and comprehending the forms and processes that occur in our surrounding. This book presents some of Author: Dericks P. Shukla.

      Book Description. Urban Ecology is a rapidly developing area of research and study. Drawing on the work of many disciplines—including geography, planning, landscape architecture, sociology, economics, anthropology, engineering, and climatology—urban ecologists argue that an understanding of the relationships between living organisms and their urban environment as an integrated social. Anthropogenic geomorphology studies society’s impact on the geographical environment, and especially on the Earth’s surface. This volume provides guidance to students discussing the basic topics of anthropogenic geomorphology. The chapters cover both its system, and its connections with other.
