Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



It is debatable whether tropical geomorphology is intrinsically different from the geomorphology of other places. This paper primarily examines the research themes of the last ten years or so, identifies the major trends, and attempts to predict areas where interest is expected to concentrate in near future. The following topics among the current research trends are highlighted : geochemical erosion, movement on tropical slopes, rivers in the tropics, tropical landforms, hydrology and sedimentation in the rainforest, denudation efficiency in the humid tropics, the Quaternary evolution and changes, and the applied side of tropical geomorphology
