rock control theory is concerned with the influences of rock properties on the formation of land forms. The problem of rock control has been considered as a geomorphological concept for a very long time, and the writer believes it began with the start of geomorphology; therefore it is not a new concept.

Almost 50 years have passed since the publication of Yatsu's "Rock control in geomorphology", a book that highlighted the importance of an understanding of the influence of rock properties on the formation of landforms.

Case studies provide important lessons in risk management, and experts provide summaries of current research. The text also promotes good practice and effective land use, and looks at problems caused Missing: Rock control.

The word geomorphology is derived from the three Greek word geo,morphs and word Geo mean earth,morph mean shape and logos means geomorphology is a systematic and organized description and analysis of landforms of the earth.

Using examples from around the world, Piotr Migon offers a comprehensive view of the geomorphology of granite areas, showing how the specific characteristics of the rock itself influence natural landscapes, and why natural processes shaping the earth's surface act so distinctively on granite.

Memoir Rocky landforms dominate large portions of the world’s coast.

Cliffs and shore platforms form spectacular landscapes, yet when compared to other landforms they are relatively unstudied with many contemporary controversies dating back to the mid-nineteenth century.

The past decade has seen a reinvigoration of research driven by advances in technology that now enable precise.

Mass wasting, also known as slope movement or mass movement, is the geomorphic process by which soil, sand, regolith, and rock move downslope typically as a solid, continuous or discontinuous mass, largely under the force of gravity, frequently with characteristics of a flow as in debris flows and mudflows.

Types of mass wasting include creep, slides, flows, topples, and falls, each with its. Remote sensing and GIS tools have broadly helped hydrogeologists to delineate the groundwater prospective zones for watershed development and management.

The origin, movement and existence of groundwater depends on several factors such as slope, drainage density, land use, geology, lineament density and geomorphology.
