New Developments in Process Understanding and Modelling in Geomorphology - Virtual Special Issue, December 2010

New Developments in Process Understanding and Modelling in Geomorphology

Guest Editors: Damian Lawler and Michael Fairchild

This special issue demonstrates how geomorphology, as a mature discipline, is critically dependent upon technical innovation as a means of reinvigorating the kinds of questions we ask. Drawing upon state-of-the-art examples from modeling, dating and process measurement, it shows how geomorphology remains a discipline where there is still much that we do not understand and that new techniques are critical to what we do.
