the book mirror s that of hi half-century f computer an d fiel research: the functional relationship among form, material, and process. Using a systems approach and draw­ ing upon a wide range of examples from around the world, Ahnert links empirical results to theoretical models of landform development. The scope of the text is comprehensive,Author: Dorothy Merritts. Davis developed a theory of landform creation and erosion, which he called the "geographical cycle." This theory is more commonly known as the "cycle of erosion," or more properly, the "geomorphic cycle." His theory explained that mountains and landforms are created, mature, and then become : Matt Rosenberg.

landform change; it is a threshold that is developed within the geomorphic system by changes in the morphology of the landform itself through time. It is the change in the landform itself that is most important, because until it has evolved to a critical situation, adjustment or failure will not occur.   Dr. Manishika Jain in this video on slope evolution explains the three models of slope development. 1.

Thus, these cycles, while describing the development of landforms, also give information about the evolution of slopes. LESTER CHARLES KING Lester Charles King ( – ) was an English geologist and geomorphologist known for his theories on scarp retreat.

Each stage has distinct landforms and other properties associated with them, which can occur along the length of a river's upper, middle, and lower course. Though the cycle of erosion was a crucial early contribution to the development of geomorphology, many of Davis' theories regarding landscape evolution, sometimes termed 'Davisian geomorphology', were heavily criticized by later Awards: Hayden Memorial Geological Award ().
