Geomorphology IAG Paris

Geomorphology is nothing but the study of landforms, their processes, form and the sediments at the surface of the planets. Initially, the landforms are produced by the deposition or the erosion. The real fact is that both rock and the sediments are worn by a unique process known to be the earth surface process and then it is transported to the different locations. There is a list of different climatic environments which are produced by the different suites of the landforms. The sand dunes and the ergs ate the different landforms of the deserts which is totally a different one from the periglacial features and they are found in the polar and sub-polar regions. In order to get a deeper knowledge and for a better understanding the Geomorphologists maps are the best ones. .
In the present era, the earth surface processes are processing and forming the landforms, changing the landscape etc. Most of the geomorphic processes operate at the slower rate. The dangerous landslide or the flood causes the rapid change to the environment and sometimes it threatens the human beings also. Many geological hazards such as the volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis including the landslides fall within the factor of the Geomorphologists. The advancements in the remote sensing techniques have benefitted the Geomorphologists in many ways from the ancient days and thus to get deeper knowledge about the global distributions.
Geomorphology is an important study in order to understand the geomorphologic process of the various environments, to detect the natural hazards such as the earthquake, flooding, tsunami, and volcanism etc. Finally in order to identify the various landform features including the landscapes this geomorphology is more important one. There are several agents for the geomorphologic process such as the river activities, wind activities, glacier activities and the wave activities. Here three types of activities are done such as the erosion activities, transportation, and the depositional activities.

The geomorphic process is divided into two types such as the terrestrial process and the extraterrestrial process. The terrestrial process is again differentiated into two types such as the exogenous process and the endogenous process. The Endogenic process is originated in the interior of the earth. Here there are sudden rapid movements such as the earthquake, faulting, and diastrophism. The exogenic process is originated on the surface of the earth and also it causes the slow movements such as the erosion and the depositional process. Weathering, Erosion, Transportation, Aggradations and the mass movement are the different types of the exogenous process. Denudation is nothing but the things to be exposed; here the rocks presented on the earth’s surface are broken into the pieces through the external physical forces. This entire work is performed through three processes such as the weathering, erosion, and transportation.

The geomorphologic resources include both the raw materials and the landforms. Both these forms are used to the human beings which are totally depending on the economic, social and the technological factors. This gigantic process is involved in the deeper investigation in the evolution of the landforms and finally targeting on the mountain hill slopes, rivers, glaciers including the coasts. The Volcanic process is the complex one and it results in the larger variations in the landforms, deposits, and series of effects on the surrounding environment. It plays an important role in the present era and at the same time, it can entirely alter the social evolution. It is an important factor in the climate change in both the ways of locally and globally. There is a list of the classical studies in the geomorphology such as the morphometry, morphological evolution including the volcanic edifices.
