Provides readers with the fundamentals necessary for a basic understanding of the soil landscape. Divided into three major sections, it covers stratigraphy, geomorphology, hydrology, and the ways in which these geologic processes shape the landscape. Early chapters cover the textural characteristics of soil materials, fluvial systems, hillslope sediments and transitional environments. Later chapters explore volcanics, saprolite, the evolutionary process of landscapes, rates of denudation, streams, hillslope processes and mass movement. Included at the end of the chapters are lists of references, figures, tables and additional reading sources.

It is a very expensive book. It lacks the explanations of very good books like Factors of Soil Formation by Hans Jenny and Fluvial Processes in Geomorphology by Leopold and Wolman, which are excellent books and the price is not so high. As a scientist I would not recommend the book to the students or the professionals.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
