Éditeur : John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United Kingdom

Date d'édition : 2000

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Edition : 1. Auflage.

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The purpose of this book is to demonstrate that the land-based geomorphological evidence of environmental change from late Pleistocene, Holocene, historical and contemporary time periods remain central to the understanding of environmental change both at the global and regional scale. It begins with a look at how global Pleistocene climate change affected placation and tectonic instability. The middle section then looks at environments unaffected by human activity in an attempt to explore scenarios that may result from climate change alone in the future. The final two sections look at human activity and global environmental change by monitoring floodplain stratigraphy, cartographic evidence, sediment transport, watershed studies and coastal surveys, and offer practical advice on land management issues. Includes case studies from Europe, North America and Asia. N° de réf. du libraire AAH9780471895909
