Landscapes and landforms are expressions of geologic structure, processes, and time. Each landscape expresses certain physical similarities grouped into provinces based on geologic history, geologic structure, rock formations, and the processes which weather and erode landscapes based on climatic conditions. All factors play a role in shaping and sculpting landscapes and landforms. Introduction to Geomorphology I presents structures, landforms, and geologic processes presenting constructional (tectonic and volcanic landforms), destructive (weathering processes), erosional processes (mass wasting, hillslope evolution), fluvial (river), glacial and coastal processes using many photographic examples for eachs ubject presented (126 photos).Most photographs were extracted from the Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia based on free to use licensing terms. Photographs representing the Great Plains were obtained from the US Geological Survey and are noted as the source on theanbsp;...
