Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In sections on stratigraphy, geomorphology, and hydrology, outlines the three major geological processes that shape the landscape, and suggests how to see the basic similarities through the welter of variation that the planet's surface presents. The chapters are fairly independent, allowing scientists or students to read on topics of particular interest. The information is gleaned mostly from textbooks, rather than from technical journals, both because they tend to summarize large bodies of information, and because they are more easily obtained.

    very poor book

    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.
