Divergent plate boundaries. adjacent plates move away (i.e., diverge) from one another (geomorphological processes) and _____ forces of the Earth materials (rocks, sediments). Canadian Cordillera (west) this region includes the mountains of British Columbia, Alberta. Coastal Landforms and Processes • Waves, Tides and Shallow Water Processes • Littoral Zone area north to the Canadian Arctic, on the west coast, from Seattle, Washington, north to the Aleutian of regional mountain ranges that cut across the coast, the rugged.

    The book concentrates on hydrological and geomorphological processes in mountain rivers with the majority of the contributions focusing on the Alps. Methods and results of research in solid load transport and river bed dynamics are presented by international authors. Studies of contemporary patterns of erosion in the glaciated and largely undisturbed Canadian landscape reveal spatial patterns that do not conform to the conventional concepts of drainage basin se.

    The new book series World Geomorphological Landscapes aims to be a scientific library of monographs that present and explain physical landscapes across the globe, focusing on both representative and uniquely spectacular examples. Each book contains details on geomorphology of a particular country or a geographically coherent region. The book aims to present the unique geomorphological landscapes of the Czech Republic. The geomorphic uniqueness of this country benefits from the proximity to two distinct European geological domains: the old cratonized Bohemian Massif and the relatively young Tertiary fold and thrust belt of the Western Carpathians.

Get this from a library. Mountain geomorphology: geomorphological processes in the Canadian Cordillera. [Olav Slaymaker; Harold J McPherson] -- Collection of papers by researchers actively engaged in studies of the mountains of Alberta and B.C.

Geomorphology is a substantial part of the proceedings. The Canadian Geomorphology Research Group (CGRG), founded inmeets with other societies mentioned above, and sponsors sessions on special topics. It has a newsletter, maintains a bibliography of Canadian geomorphology and encourages dialogue on the Internet.

Functional mountain geomorphology emphasises the interaction between processes and landforms, while applied mountain geomorphology concerns the interrelationships between geomorphological processes and society. Mountain Geomorphology is a valuable source of information for students studying mountain geomorphology, and also for academics and 3/5(1).

gh no universally accepted definition ofmountainexists, it is generally accepted that a mountain is a large landform that rises abruptly from the surrounding level and attains a high elevation, typically in the form of a peak that is separated from the surrounding lower elevations and adjacent peaks.

What we see when we look at a scenic view is the result of the interplay of the forces that shape the earth's surface. These operate on many different timescales and involve geological as well as climatic forces.
