Landscapes which contain moving water are perhaps the most sccnically attractive, and to a geomorphologist have long been a central focus for landform studies. Humid Landformsexamines from a novel angle the effects of running water on the landscape, emphasising the processes changing valleys and rivers. The author takes the humid tropics as the most characteristic case of landform evolution through water erosion and deposition and treats humid temperate lands, previously accepted as the 'normal' pattern of landform evolution, as a variation of the situation in the humid tropics. The book emphasises the basic principles of chemical, physical and biotic interrelationships which affect the pattern of landform evolution and provides the reader with a greater understanding of the changes, sometimes dramatic, that moving water makes to the surrounding countryside.
