Geomorphology and the urban tropics : building an interface between research and usage

Changing the face of the earth-engineering geomorphology

Description :
The AA. examine the range of these cities developed in the tropics with reference to 1) their site-related problems, 2) the nature of geomorphological information required for specific ameliorating actions, and 3) the level of management required for city maintenance. Management requires interfacing geomorphology with engineering practices and urban planning. They present case studies of cities ranging from those with limited problems and possible engineering and land-zoning solutions (Singapore) to cities where the hazards are so acute that a practical solution is difficult to achieve (Kingston, Bangkok).
