Series: Developments in Earth Surface Processes

Developments in Earth Surface Processes provides detailed expositions of some of the best new fieldwork, laboratory assessments, and original thinking on the physical processes that shape the landforms of the Earth's surface. Topics include a wide variety of spatially extensive, temporally controlled, and numerically robust presentations. Selected experts on diverse aspects of geomorphic process and resulting landform evolution are sought for new volumes. For more information about the series or how to submit a book proposal, please contact the Series Editor Jack Shroder at or the Acquisition Editor, Susan Dennis at

Most recent volume

Volume 99. The Physical Nature of the Amazon Basin

Published: 12th September 1920 Editors: Edgardo Latrubesse

During the last 10 years important advances in geomorphology, hydrology and the Quaternary history of the Amazon have been achieved, and many of them have been obtained by the author of this book and his collaborators. Several books exist on the ecology, biology and social aspects of the Amazon basin, but to date nobook has considers in detail all the topics covered here. The author is an experienced teacher of courses on ecology and geography.
