All welcome to the AA Landscape Urbanism Lecture Series on Geomorphology 2014 starting next Tuesday 7th October at 14:00, Soft Room, Architectural Association:
These lectures from experts in geomorphology will give an overview of existing methods and practices that describe the active processes shaping the landscape.

What were the landscapes of the past like? What will landscapes look like in the future? Landscapes are all around us, but most of us know very little about how they have developed, what goes on in them, and how they react to changing climates, tectonics and human activities. Examining what landscape is, and how we use a range of ideas and techniques to study it, Andrew Goudie a demonstrate how geomorphologists have built on classic methods pioneered by some great 19th century scientists to examine our Earth.
