Abstract

Richard Chorley was arguably one of the most influential British geographers in the second half of the 20th century. Trained at Oxford and in the USA, he taught at the University of Cambridge (UK) from 1958 until his death. His innovative work in physical geography, involving systems thinking and model building, placed British geomorphology at the centre of development in physical geography across the world. He held a holistic view of geography and worked to implement major reforms at both school and university levels. - (HC)
