GY3154 Geomorphological applications
GY2150 Geomorphological processes.
First, the specific techniques required for field-, map- or computer-based assessments of geomorphic problems will be assessed.
Secondly, the role of geomorphology in understanding natural hazards will provide a focus for approaches that could be considered as reactive.
Thirdly, more proactive approaches within conservation and management will be addressed.
Fourthly, the use of geomorphic studies in planning will continue the proactive theme.
Fifthly, illustrations of how these different approaches may be integrated will be given by evaluating the role of applied geomorphology in the context of understanding the effects of potential future climate change.
