In addition to historical concerns, today's geomorphologist must relate to problems that face hydrologists, engineers, geologists, pedologists, foresters, and many other types of earth scientists. The bond that unites geomorphology with so many apparently diverse disciplines is the common need to understand the processes operating within the Earth's surficial systems. Thus, although the historical aspect of landscapes remains important, it is absolutely essential for earth scientists to have a basic understanding of surface mechanics.
