Geomorphologists seek to understand why landscapes look the way they do, to understand landform history and dynamics and to predict changes through a combination of field observations, physical experiments and numerical modeling.

A fascinating and informative exploration of periglacial processes, past and present, and their role in landscape evolution Periglacial Geomorphology presents a comprehensive introduction to the processes that operate in present periglacial environments and discusses the inferences that can be drawn about former periglacial environments from those processes.

Periglacial geomorphology is concerned with the landforms and processes which occur in cold non-glacial regions. These regions are becoming more important because of the need to exploit their natural resources, so that oil and mining industries require periglacial geomorphologists on their staff. This book presents a review of the present status of periglacial geomorphology as reflected through a series of themes, including weathering and sediment transport, active layer processes, process-form relationships and broad aspects of the periglacial system. The focus is firmly on the achievements of the last decade, and spans representative examples of European and North American work. International co-operation has been excellent in producing a valuable contribution to the literature.
