Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explores how geomorphology and geomorphological hydrology can contribute to good land-use planning decisions, and the environmental effects of land management practices in terms of the geomorphological systems in which they are implemented. Reviews recent developments in applied geomorphology and looks critically at some of the issues, especially its degree of practical applicability. After general topics, focuses on the four themes of ground instability and land management, the effect of land use on the hydrological and erosional response of geomorphological systems, modelling geomorphological responses to environmental change, and geomorphological aspects of the management of environmental risk. Most of the 18 papers are from a January 1993 conference in London. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
