This 2nd edition, first published by the Geographical Association 1996 was acquired by Thematic Trails and re-printed in 2005 and 2011. 48 pages. 29 illustrations. This booklet provides a serious explanation of the varied landforms of the North Devon Coast. In particular the aim is to offer an interpretation which is not only useful to visiting tutors and students but is also presented in a way which is digestible and fascinating for the interested non-specialist member of the general public. The booklet, drawing attention to a large number of coastal features, encourages readers to make an inquisitive interpretation of the landscape. Contents: Hartland Peninsula, Westward Ho!, the Taw-Torridge estuary, Croyde Bay and the Exmoor coast with the Valley of Rocks. Each of these five areas has a nesting set of Thematic Trails (see this catalogue). Each trail provides a detailed commentary and clear instructions on walks covering selected themes within this guide. The overarching strategy for all thematic trails is to evoke a sense of place by tempting the participant to play the role of interpreter early in each walk.

Investigation and Management of Soft Rock Cliffs addresses a wide range of topics, such as investigation approaches, measurement and monitoring techniques and the prediction methods available. It presents a comprehensive overview of how eroding cliffs can best be managed, stressing the need to consider both structural and non-structural solutions to cliff recession problems, and encourages coastal engineers and planners to adopt an integrated approach to cliff management.

Highlights both the conservation value of the coastal geomorphology sites of Great Britain and the important role these sites play in the development of the science of geomorphology. Each chapter in this work includes descriptions of the landforms and gives interpretation of dynamics of the geomorphological systems operating within the sites.

South West Sea Kayaking

The south-west coast of England is described in 50 great voyages, from the Isle of Wight to the Scilly Isles to the Severn Estuary. As well as describing 50 great kayaking journeys, this book presents all the navigational and tidal information a sea kayaker needs on this magnificent section of coast. This means that it can also be used as a kayaker's 'pilot' for any journey they might wish to undertake in this area. It follows the successful format of other Pesda Press sea kayaking guides, presenting the information in a user-friendly fashion and making good use of maps and colour photographs. As well as providing essential information on where to start and finish, distances, times and tidal information, the book does much to stimulate and inform our interest in the environment we are passing through. It is full of facts and anecdotes about local history,geology, scenery, seabirds and sea mammals. A fascinating read and an inspirational book.

STRUCTURE OF THE VOLUME AND TERMINOLOGY USED This book contains scientific descriptions of 63 localities (Figure A) of at least national importance for Quaternary geology, geomorphology and environmental change in South-West England. These sites were selected by the Geological Conservation Review and are accordingly designated 'GCR' sites. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the Quaternary. Chapter 2 synthesizes the geomorphological development and Quaternary history of the region, and outlines the principles involved in site selection. The individual GCR site descriptions form the core of the book. In the following chapters, sites are arranged and described in broad geographic areas and by research topic. This is necessitated by the widely disparate nature of the field evidence in Soutb West England: sites demonstrating the full range of Quaternary and geomorphological features are not evenly and conveniently dispersed throughout the region, and some areas have significant gaps. Neither do the individual chapters contain sites that neces sarily equate with particular site selection networks. Rather, the chosen chapter headings provide the least repetitive means of describing the sites and background material. Where possible, a chronological approach, from oldest to youngest, has been used to describe sites within a given chapter. Again, this approach is not always possi ble, and a group of sites may show variations on landform or Stratigraphie evidence broadly within one major time interval or chronostratigraphic stage; inevitably there are many overlaps.

Das Buch erklärt die Oberflächenformen der Erde als Resultat der Prozesse ihrer Entstehung und Veränderung. Vielfältige funktionale Rückkopplungen zwischen Formen, Prozessen, geologischer Struktur und Gesteinsmaterial steuern dabei die Entwicklung geomorphologischer Systeme in allen Größenordnungen. Ergebnisse der empirischen Geländeforschung werden mit theoretischen Modellen der Formenentwicklung verknüpft. Die vorliegende vierte Auflage ist überarbeitet und aktualisiert. Aus dem Inhalt: • endogene und exogene Prozessresponssysteme • Gesteinsarten und Verwitterung • Denudation und Hangentwicklung • fluviale Formenentwicklung • Zusammenwirken von Flussarbeit und Hangentwicklung • Rumpfflächen, Pedimente und Inselberge • strukturbedingte Landformen • vulkanische Landformen • Karstformen • das glaziale System • das litorale System
