King of the plains : Lester King's contributions to geomorphology

Auteur :
TWIDALE, C. R.

Description :
Lester King was one of the most influential geomorphologists of the twentieth century. He challenged the Davisian scheme of landscape evolution and offered an alternative model that has proved viable in many parts of the world. King devised original explanations for several well known landforms, and though many of his ideas and interpretations have fallen by the wayside he stimulated many of his contemporaries critically to review their assumptions and explanations.
