This textbook provides a modern, quantitative and process-oriented approach to equip students with the tools to understand geomorphology. Insight into the interpretation of landscapes is developed from basic principles and simple models, and by stepping through the equations that capture the essence of the mechanics and chemistry of landscapes. Boxed worked examples and real-world applications bring the subject to life for students, allowing them to apply the theory to their own experience. The book covers cutting edge topics, including the revolutionary cosmogenic nuclide dating methods and modeling, highlights links to other Earth sciences through up-to-date summaries of current research, and illustrates the importance of geomorphology in understanding environmental changes. Setting up problems as a conservation of mass, ice, soil, or heat, this book arms students with tools to fully explore processes, understand landscapes, and to participate in this rapidly evolving field.

Text is easy to read, informal tone, with excellent tables, diagrams and plates; bibliography is extensive and helpful. This is a perfect book for undergraduate study and hobby reference.
Anderson & Anderson is a great undergraduate text or reference for the non-specialist

This text is a very clear and concise introduction to geomorphology. I am an engineer by training, and I very much appreciate the process-based focus of the book. Topics are up to date, incorporating research ideas and results that were still being introduced at the time of the book's writing. Anderson & Anderson is a great undergraduate text or reference for the non-specialist.

It is dense, but then, so is the subject. The processes are well explained and the equations are as well. I recommend this text to anyone studying this subject. A+++

Great reading so far. Only to glacial environments (chapter 8) but have enjoyed it.
