In this atlas, the authors have assembled a set of maps which portray a vivid picture of the physical environment of the British Isles. Each page of maps is accompanied by text which explains the nature and causes of the patterns which can be observed. The contents are broadly based, covering the geology, geomorphology, hydrology, climatology, soils, biogeography and seas of the British Isles and the human impact on each of these aspects. The maps are as uncomplicated as the subject matter allows and the text is designed to be accessible to a wide range of readers. The book was prepared to celebrate the centenary of the Geographical Association. From it emerges a remarkable picture of the physical landscape. Together with its forthcoming companion volume, "The Social and Economic Atlas of Britain", it provides a comprehensive overview of the British Isles.Biografía del autor:
