This book explores new sources of information, including digital topographic data, remote sensing and thermochronology, that improve our understanding of the earth's topography and the rate at which it is being eroded. Presents analysis of large-scale tectonics and topography with tables, figure and some photographs to supplement the text and examines the ways in which geophysical data and modeling can help to explain the development of large-scale landscape features.
