With a balance of theory and practical applications, TectonicGeomorphology of Mountains is essential reading for researchgeologists and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students inthe earth sciences. * * This book describes how tectonic events influence geomorphicprocesses and explores how landscapes respond to tectonicdeformation in the ways in which they are weathered, washed, andabraded * Uses new approaches to enhance theoretical models of landscapeevolution and to solve practical problems such as the assessment ofearthquake hazards * Includes previously unpublished research and theory * Examines how to use key landforms as reference levels inchanging landscapes, estimate rates of mountain-range uplift, andmap seismic shaking caused by prehistorical earthquakes * Presents a diverse range of examples from around the world
