Stanford Libraries' official online search tool for books, media, journals, databases, government documents and more. Theoretical underpinnings of weathering systems research. Current weathering study methods. Linking processes to form in arid weathering systems. Explaining the development of weathering landforms in arid environments. Weathering rates in arid environments. Arid weathering and landscape evolution. Scale and arid weathering systems.

The following are discussed: (a) physical, chemical and biotic weathering, (b) mineral weathering, (c) clay minerals, (d) rock weathering, (e) investigational techniques, (f) hydrology and weathering, (g) climate and weathering, (h) weathering products, (i) soils, (j) deep weathering, (k) weathering rates, (l) weathering through geological time, and (m) landforms and landscape evolution. The geomorphic texture of this slow-eroding, granitic landscape appears to be set by climate-driven feedbacks among chemical weathering, regolith fabric differentiation, hydrological routing, and sediment transport that enhance the vigor of hillslope sediment transport Cited by:

The Earth’s surface gets broken down through weathering. For as long as the Earth has existed, weathering has helped shape the landscape. Weathering wears away rocks and soil. Water is often the main cause of weathering, either as rain or ice. Rainwater can easily enter cracks in rocks or sidewalks. Weathering and erosion slowly chisel, polish, and buff Earth's rock into ever evolving works of art—and then wash the remains into the sea. The processes are definitively independent, but not.

Purchase Weathering and Landscape Evolution - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1. models for landscape evolution attempt to generalize how uplift and denudation interact.

– In the ìgeographic cycleî of W. Davis, uplift dominates in young landscapes, and denudation becomes more dominant as the landscape matures. – The steady-state hypothesis proposes that uplift and denudation remain in balance for long periods of time.

1. Introduction. Weathering is arguably the most crucial and fundamental phenomenon in landscape evolution and topographic development. The in-place breakdown of geologic material by physical, chemical, and biological processes (a typical textbook definition of weathering) is a necessary precursor to most forms of erosion, sediment transport, and by: About the Book.

Geology and Landscape Evolution: General Principles Applied to the United States, Second Edition, is an accessible text that balances interdisciplinary theory and applications within the physical geography, geology, geomorphology and climatology of the United States.

The vast diversity of terrain and landscape across the United. While there has been much debate about the subsequent uplift, erosion, and evolution of the landscape associated with this rift, the large-scale morphology is roughly similar to other passive margins around the world (Matmon et al., ), although an important difference exists in that the drainage divide occurs inland of the scarp crest.

In both the medium and long-term, the significance of weathering exerts for these reasons a crucial control on landscape evolution and topographic development in the tropics (e.g., Thomas, Rock Weathering and Landform Evolution brings together a series of important studies on rock weathering by leading researchers, and illustrates the diversity.

Weathering processes are key to long-term landscape evolution theories and models. Although biological weathering has been studied to some extent for decades, a number of key aspects of this fundamental process still require a satisfactory explanation (e.g., Yatsu, ; Anderson, ), and the role of trees in weathering processes awaits.

Weathering describes the breaking down or dissolving of rocks and minerals on the surface of the Earth. Water, ice, acids, salts, plants, animals, and changes in temperature are all agents of weathering.

Landscapes evolve in response to external forces, such as tectonics and climate, that influence surface processes of erosion and weathering. Internal feedbacks between erosion and weathering also play an integral role in regulating the landscapes response.

Our understanding of these internal and external feedbacks is limited to a handful of field-based studies, only a few of which have Cited by: Computational models are invaluable in understanding the complex effects of physical processes and environmental factors which interact to influence landform evolution of geologic time scales.

This book provides a holistic guide to the construction of numerical models to explain the co-evolution of landforms, soil, vegetation and tectonics, and describes how the geomorphology observable today 5/5(1). Researchers in geomorphology, geochemistry, quaternary geology, soil science, and mineralogy will welcome this volume, the first to focus exclusively on rates of silicate chemical weathering.

Consisting largely of previously unpublished data from six countries, the volume examines the latest experimental, modelling, and field information is presented on topics of current research. Rock Weathering and Landform Evolution brings together a series of important studies on rock weathering by leading researchers, and illustrates the diversity of approaches and techniques that are currently being used by geomorphologists to study weathering processes and responses.

The book commences with a number of research studies and review chapters on weathering processes and .The book addresses the effects of wind, waves, floods, rain, and acid rain as well as natural processes that cause mechanical weathering such as freezing and thawing and the drilling action of plant roots.

Interesting scenarios examine the delicate balance of nature such as one blade of deep-rooted grass initiating a large sand dune.Major types of duricrusts (calcretes, silcretes, ferricretes) are briefly described, and their significance for long-term landscape evolution is discussed.

Duricrusts are important landscape markers for understanding past, present and possibly future weathering, soil and erosion dynamics in sensitive, climate-controlled : Jürgen Runge.
