Abstract

The aim of this review is to introduce some key examples showing the role of Earth surface processes, the traditional subject of geomorphology, within the interacting Earth system. The paper considers three examples of environmental systems in which geomorphology plays a key role: (1) links between topography, tectonics, and atmospheric circulation; (2) links between geomorphic processes and biogeochemical cycles; and (3) links between biological processes and the Earth’s surface. In conclusion, key research needs are discussed
