Geomorphology is an eclectic subject, drawing from geology, physical geography, soils and atmospheric sciences, civil and environmental engineering, and still other fields. The third edition of Bloom’s outstanding, classroom-tested text reflects the diversity of geomorphology, synthesizing its principles to make them accessible to students and practitioners from all disciplines. Bloom covers all of the major constructional and erosional processes of landform creation and change with separate sections devoted to glaciation and coastal geomorphology. Each set of processes and the resulting landforms are explained in a separate chapter, providing a comprehensive, nonmathematical overview. Profuse examples and illustrations represent landforms from around the world, avoiding the regionalism pervading other texts in the field.

A systematic analysis of landforms of the late Cenzoic Era that fully covers the constructional processes of tectonism and volcanism and the erosional processes of weathering, flurial erosion, glaciers, winds, and waves. It explains each set of processes and the resulting landforms in a separate chapter to provide a comprehensive, nonmathematical overview of the subject. Coverage of rock weathering includes more discussion of soils, soil formation, and soils chronosequences, which tell about the evolution of the present landscape. A chapter on The Last Glacial-Interglacial Cycle,” stresses the intensity of change during and since the last ice age when human civilization has risen, and appeals to readers to understand change as a normal factor of life on Earth.
