Vignettes

Vignettes are stand-alone, illustrated electronic case studies that teach about geomorphology, surface processes, and/or Quaternary history. Vignettes can be used alone or in combination with the "Key Concepts in Geomorphology", the first in a new generation of textbooks. Vignettes allow faculty to customize the learning resources they offer students to enrich and personalize student learning experiences.

Time evolution of soils
Anthony Dosseto
Soils are vital for the sustainability of ecosystems and human societies (e.g. (Montgomery, 2007)), and therefore it is important to understand how their rates of production and erosion are balanced. Furthermore, ...

Native animals and the formation of healthy soils
David Eldridge
Soil is an important resource on which most of the world's production depends. Soil is not an inert medium; it is a living and breathing ecosystem made up of water, air and organic material. Soil provides the ...

Ant activity and the development of nutrient-rich soil profiles
David Eldridge
Rainfall is one of the most important factors in arid and semi-arid (dryland) environments; it supplements soil moisture storage, stimulates plant germination, and brings new life to dormant vegetation. Rainfall ...

A high resolution record of soil erosion from pre-agricultural times to the present: transport- and supply-limitation of erosion
S.J. Gale
One of the major drawbacks of most records of soil erosion (and particularly of records of the impact of agriculture on soil loss) is their limited time span. This makes it difficult to judge the long-term effects ...

Human Impacts on the Landscape
Roger Hooke
Humans move tremendous amounts of earth every year. They are arguably the premier geomorphic agent sculpting the surface of Earth today. In the early 1990s, people in the United States were moving about 0.8 Gt (Gt ...
