Advances in Hillslope Processes, Volumes 1 and 2 / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
Deals in detail with the full range of elements appropriate to hillslope research. It develops several key themes in an attempt to bring together the very latest advances in hillslope research. Hydrological, solute, soil, gully and slope stability processes together with processes in tropical, semi arid and periglacial environments are all accorded major sections in the book. Written by internationally renowned experts in the field it brings together recent innovative advances in both modelling and field monitoring.
