Geomorphology

Introduction: equilibrium and thresholds in geomorphology, guiding principles, rates of processes, what drives geomorphic processes, the climate context
Large scale geomorphology: shape of planet, plate tectonics, ocean basins, orogens, influence of mantle on topography
Weathering (‘in situ’ decomposition and specific shapes)
Hillslopes: processes and basic parameters (geology, climate, tectonics)
Fluvial processes in geomorphology: Drainage basins, water and sediment in channels, channel form and processes, floodplains
Eolian forms and deposits: type and origin of deserts, dunes, loess
Glacial and periglacial processes and forms: Glaciology, type of glaciers, glacial and periglacial geology: erosional forms and processes, depositional forms
Tectonic geomophology: topographic expression of deformation associated with different tectonic features
Anthropogenic geomorphology: study of role of humans in creating landforms and modifying the geomorphological processes
Dating methods and establishing timing in the landscape
