Introduction to process geomorphology.


Introduction to process geomorphology.

Sharma, Vijay Kumar.

CRC Press


415 pages




Sharma (Kurukshetra University) introduces readers to process dynamics and the origin of landforms by the contemporary processes involved in their evolution. Highlighting the physical and chemical laws governing the activity of processes involved in specific environmental stress conditions, the author discusses competing hypotheses regarding the evolution of landforms, and discusses the bases of internal geologic processes for the explanation of the tectogenic features of the earth. This highly technical book also deals with new theories on the dynamics of magma upwelling, the deformation behavior of rapidly subducting oceanic plates, and the model for the Himalayan orogeny.
