Rezension

From the book reviews:

“The book published under the patronage of International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) is an invaluable gift to the geoscientific community of India in particular and to the world in general. The editor has done a meticulous job of selecting geoscientists who are eminent in their own fields and well versed with landscapes and landforms about which they have written in their respective article.” (K. N. Prudhvi Raju, Journal of the Geological Society of India, Vol. 84, 2014)
