Geomorphology University of Tsukuba

Course Overview

This course provides an introduction to geomorphology - the study of earth`s landforms and the processes which produce and modify them.

Learning Achievement

The first part of the lecture gives an overview of geomorphology with its guiding principles and theories. The second part focusses on individual geomorphic processes (weathering, mass movements). Other geomorphic processes are covered in EG91181 Soil Erosion, EG91161 Process Geomorphology, and EG90211 Natural Hazards.
This lecture is held online. Check information on Manaba a few days before the lecture starts to find out how the course is implemented. If student number is low, "Microsoft Teams" is used to ensure student-instructor interaction. If student number is high a streaming service is used.

Competence

• Capable of explaining basic concepts used in geomorphology and applying them also to other disciplines such as biology, agro-biology, or physics
• Knowing how geomorphic processes operate on Earth to create landforms and landscapes
• Capable of identifying landforms and discussing their development
• Understanding of scaling issues in geomorphological systems in space and time
