First published in 1983, this book describes the construction and in-laboratory use of basic earth-science equipment, including the flume, rainfall simulator, wind tunnel and wave generator. It is emphasised throughout that the equipment should be capable of a high level of control so that experiments can be planned and replicated. The aim of the book is to facilitate the laboratory study of landform processes in courses associated with geomorphology, geology, physical geography and earth science in general. The book contains details of a number of experiments using each type of simulator, and these are described in detail on a formal objective-procedure-conclusion basis, each conclusion being repeated using a 'systems analysis' approach to key attributes. This book will be invaluable to instructions at universities, colleges and secondary schools who teach earth science, geology, physical geography and geomorphology, and to students training to be teachers in these subjects.
