  1. General sources of information 5 items
    Books and articles of relevance to the different sections of the module will be highlighted during the constituent lectures and seminars. More general sources of broader relevance to the module as a whole include:
    1. Landscapes and geomorphology: a very short introduction - Andrew S. Goudie, Heather A. Viles 2010

      Book  As the title implies, this provides a concise introduction to geomorphology. Whilst it is written primarily for a general audience, it provides some useful detail throughout and is a good way of introducing yourself to the subject area.

    2. Fundamentals of geomorphology - Richard J. Huggett 2017

      Book  An ideal general text that provides a greater level of detail and critical insight that the year 1 texts. Part I provides a useful introduction to core concepts in geomorphology whilst part II highlights the key roles played by plate tectonics, volcanoes and structural controls. Part III is of most relevance covering both the full range of process environments as well as long-term landscape evolution. Copies of both the 4th ed (2017) and 3rd ed (2011) are available from the Library.

    3. Geomorphology and global environmental change - Olav H. Slaymaker, Tom Spencer, Christine Embleton-Hamann 2009 (electronic resource)

      Book  Edited volume that considers the complex interactions between environmental change, geomorphic processes and landscape evolution. The inclusion of chapters on specific process environments or “landsystems” is of particular relevance to this module.

    4. British Society for Geomorphology

      Website  Includes a broad range of useful resources including images, a developing online text on geomorphological techniques and most importantly a short guide on the importance of geomorphology: http://www.geomorphology.org.uk/sites/default/files/10_reasons_geom/index.html

    5. Please note: These general sources provide useful background reading that will provide a useful introduction to the module as a whole and the specific case studies. However, it is crucial that in addition, you look at more advanced literature (specific texts and journal articles) that will provide the necessary detailed knowledge and understanding required to perform well in the coursework assessments and exam. With this in mind, specific recommended reading will be provided during the relevant lectures in addition to the readings listed below.
