    Abstract. Various branches of natural science research in the tropics can be traced back to Alexander von Humboldt. However, the evidence collected by him in the tropics of the New World, including such important geomorphological observations as that on the bedrock rapids in the Orinoco lowlands, where he described iron-manganese rinds far above the present flood marks as proof of formerly Author: Alfred Wirthmann. The history of geography includes many histories of geography which have differed over time and between different cultural and political groups. In more recent developments, geography has become a distinct academic discipline. 'Geography' derives from the Greek γεωγραφία – geographia, a literal translation of which would be "to describe or write about the Earth".

      Lessons from the tropics for a global geomorphology Lessons from the tropics for a global geomorphology Thomas, Michael F. Introduction Geomorphologists based in cold and temperate lands have traditionally received field observations from the tropics with ambivalence, at once fascinated by exotic forms but often dismissive of their wider significance. Colour plates are located at the end of the book. Terms in the Glossary (p. ) are shown in bold when first mentioned. Writing a book of this kind at the end of my career has been an attempt to reflect the enjoyment that I have derived from study of the land surface of the Earth. I hope that similar enjoyment may be experienced by some readers.

    SOUTH ASIA. Geomorphology (landforms) There are three major landform regions in South Asia: Outer Mountain Wall. Northern Plain. Peninsular India. Each landform region will be discussed individually. Back to Lecture Menu. or. Advance to Next Topic. Asia is equal to its shores, which also define Europe and Libya. The northern shore runs eastward along the line if the Phasis and Araxes Rivers; that is, south of the Caucasus Mountains, and around the south of the Caspian southern shore continues the Red Sea and the Nile River, as Darius the Great had constructed a canal between them. This division and system was already in place.

Geomorphological research in the humid to seasonal tropics has primarily concentrated on the most characteristic landform assemblage of this zone, namely that of stepped, largely undissected etchplains, often dotted with inselbergs and cutting across ancient basement rocks.

Although the author discusses extensively this subject, he puts particular emphasis on the differences of chemical. The high southern and eastern plateaus, rarely falling below m (2, ft), have a mean elevation of about 1, m (3, ft). The South African Plateau, as far as about 12° S, is bounded east, west and south by bands of high ground which fall steeply to the this account South Africa has a general resemblance to an inverted saucer.

Geomorphology plays a pivotal role in linking the traditional subdisciplines of physical geography. This is because geomorphological processes are influenced by climate, and geomorphology in turn strongly controls land surface hydrology and ecosystems.
