Rezension

“This book undertakes a comprehensive treatment of the geomorphology of this diverse and fascinating country and succeeds reasonably well. Its greatest strength lies in the first five chapters (about one quarter of the book), which provide a solid overview of the area, including physical and historical geomorphology, geology, climate, and rivers. These will be of great use to anyone needing an introduction to or reference materials on the country. … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.” (I. D. Sasowsky, Choice, Vol. 53 (2), October, 2015)

Portrait


Paolo Billi is a Professor of Fluvial Dynamics and Geomorphology in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Ferrara in Italy. His research interests include river geomorphology, including specific topics such as river hydrology, sediment transport, river channel processes, sediment yield, gully erosion and soil erosion processes. Furthermore, he is interested in climatic change worldwide. Specific topics he investigates are human impact on rivers, desertification processes, land degradation, climate change and river response and water resources conservation.

Prof. Paolo Billi has been carrying out field and laboratory studies on these topics in Italy, in Europe and since 1983, throughout the whole Horn of Africa in Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan and Eritrea. He is author of more than 170 papers in national and international journals.
