Sinopsis

... surely one of the most relevant and timely Earth science texts for the early 21st century given the rapidity of current global climate change and predicted increase in associated natural disasters and infrastructural consequences. This comprehensive text on hazards brings fresh relevance and application to geomorphology and is an essential read for environmental consultants, land managers and scholars in Earth and environmental science.' Professor Stefan Grab, University of the Witwatersrand 'This book provides a comprehensive guide to the role of geomorphology in hazard and risk analysis. It presents an excellent and wide-ranging review of hazards and how society can respond and attempt to manage them ... It brings together an impressive group of authors with international reputations in their various fields of geomorphological research.' Professor Tim Burt, Durham University '... excellent exposition and state-of-the-art analyses of geomorphic hazards for better understanding and prevention of disasters. Alcantara-Ayala and Goudie are to be commended for their selection of topics and choice of so many prominent geoscientists to contribute chapters. Their book sets a high standard in focused analysis of diverse geomorphic hazards.' Professor John (Jack) Shroder, University of Nebraska at Omaha 'Brings together a broad range of research in a well written, comprehensively illustrated and accessible format, covering all of the major events that threaten human activity and life. An excellent synthesis for geomorphologists, the wider Earth Science community, engineers, planners and other decision makers.' Professor Robert J. Allison, University of Sussex
