Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews:

"Morphotectonics, the examination of the genetic relationships between topography and underlying tectonic or structural features within the crust, has been a rapidly developing field of the Earth sciences in recent years. … The book has quite a good list of references and an index. … In summary, this is a highly focused work … . The work deserves a space in university libraries, and is more likely to be used as a reference source … ." (Colin Murray-Wallace, Newsletter of the Geological Society of Australia, Issue 135, June, 2005)

"The present volume is devoted to the concept that drainage patterns on Earth are largely controlled by bedrock joints that have been produced tectonically. This has been a favorite theme of his scholarship for many years, and this volume pulls together in a coherent presentation much of the earlier work that has been published bit by bit in journals. … Extensive bibliography. An excellent guide. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (H. N. Pollack, Choice, Vol. 42 (3), 2004)

From the Back Cover

 

Morphotectonics, the relation between geomorphology and (neo)tectonics is fundamental to the understanding of landscape evolution. Stressing mainly the quantitative interpretation of field observations, this monograph compares the morphological structure of drainage systems, river courses, glacial forms, volcanic landscapes and mass movements with joint orientations. The latter are indicative of the neotectonic stresses; and thus inferences on the genesis of the morphological forms can be drawn. The data on outcrops on all six continents and on islands in all major oceans have been acquired to a large extent by the author himself. The book, therefore, represents a first-hand account of the work and its relevance which has been done worldwide over the last 30 years.
