Special Issues

Virtual Special Issues are collections of papers that have been solicited and managed by Guest Editors of the journal. Previously, we had published these in print form but, since 2009, our Special Issues are on-line only. This allows Earth Surface Processes and Landforms to publish Special Issue manuscripts on-line and in-print in a timely fashion, not held back by the slowest paper in review, and then to bring the Special Issue together on-line once all papers are published. ESPL welcomes suggestions for Special Issues, which should be addressed to the journal’s Managing Editor.

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

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.
