About this book

The book presents a selection of papers given at the International Symposium on “Landform – structure, evolution process control“, Bonn, June 2007. The meeting brought together senior experts and young researchers from various disciplines working on landform related issues in order to discuss the crucial role played by landform as a boundary surface between atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, pedosphere and lithosphere. The book combines introductory/overview papers and case studies. The case studies present various new approaches towards a better understanding of the role of landform as a boundary surface. Additionally, new methods of handling, modelling and visualisation of landform data (incl. digital elevation models, weather forecasting models, hydrological models, and ecological models) are presented.

About the authors

Prof. Richard Dikau has a full professorship at the department of geography. His scientific focus includesthe study of geomorphology, geomorphometry, permafrost research and natural hazards. From 1998–2007 he was the chair of the interdisciplinary research training group 437 “Landform – a structured and variable boundary layer”.

Dr. Jan-Christoph Otto works on high mountain geomorphology and sediment budgets. He is a former member of the research training group 437 “Landform – a structured and variable boundary layer” and graduated within this programme on high mountain sediment storage and sediment budgets.
