With the expanding role of geomorphologists in decision making, particularly in the methodology and implementation of environmental impact assessment (EIA), applied geomorphology is increasing in importance.

Applied Geomorphology is divided into four sections: slopes & landslides, sediment transfer dynamics, hazards & risks, and coasts. It brings practical examples from around the world and shows how geomorphological evidence can help in effective land utilisation and hazard risk assessment.

Published as part of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) series, it includes:
* Global case studies, providing important lessons in risk management

* Introductory sections written by an expert in the field, providing current research as a framework for the section

* An examination of the problems arising from inappropriate use of natural environmental and potential solutions
This book is a valuable reference for civil engineers and consultants, as well as postgraduates and researchers in the fields of Geomorphology, Geology, Civil Engineering, Environmental Science or Geography. It will be good supplementary reading for 2nd/3rd year undergraduates of geomorphology.
