Southern England PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Southern England free pdf Most people share an enthusiasm for beautiful and breathtaking scenery, explored variously through the physical challenge of climbing to the top of the tallest mountains or the joy of viewing the work of a painter- but while easy to admire from a distance, such landscapes are usually difficult to explain in words. Harnessing recent developments in computer technology, the latest New Naturalist volume uses the most up-to-date and accurate maps, diagrams and photographs to analyse the diverse landscapes of Southern England. Peter Friend highlights the many famous and much loved natural landscapes of the southern half of England, ranging from the Chalk Downs to the bays of Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, and provides detailed explanations for the wide variety of natural events and processes that have caused such an exciting range of surroundings. Setting apart the topography that has resulted from natural rather than man-made occurrences, Friend focuses on each region individually, from East Anglia to London and the Thames Valley, and explains the history and development of their land structures through detailed descriptions and colourful diagrams.Illustrated with beautifully detailed photographs throughout, Southern England comprehensively explores the formation of these wonderful landscapes that are so universally admired.

About Peter Friend

Peter Friend walked into the Department of Earth Sciences at Cambridge University as a first-year undergraduate more than fifty years ago and, apart from a period in the Scott Polar Research Institute, has been based there ever since. He teaches and explores the scenery and geology of many parts of the world, which has led to multiple visits to Spitsbergen, Greenland, Spain, India and Pakistan.
