Behind the Scenery.
Scanlon, Andrew, Ed.; And Others
Knowledge of the physiographic evolution of the Tasmanian landscape is still very far from complete; however, all aspects of the landscape are governed by definable processes acting on the rock medley which is the heritage of Tasmania's geological history. This book explains Tasmania's landforms and geology in terms of geologic processes. Chapters include: (1) "Our Changing Earth"; (2) "Weathering"; (3) "Soils and Soil Erosion"; (4) "Groundwater"; (5) "The Development of Rivers"; (6) "Waves and Coastlines"; (7) "Glaciation and Tasmania"; (8) "The Effects of Wind"; and (9) "The Geological History of Tasmania". A summary of the geological history of Tasmania is appended. (KR)
