Most practicing engineering geologists have an intrinsic appreciation for applied (engineering) geomorphology, mostly from the innate recognition that landform analysis provides a valuable tool for deducing the real nature of subsurface geologic detail. In fact, does it not follow that the exposed surface of an individual geomorphic feature generally has its own subsurface “roots” in form and physical character?

Peter Fookes has had a remarkably intense and productive, worldwide, fifty-year career in engineering geology, and he has never missed a beat in observing and passing his lessons learned on to us. Together with his general writings since the early 1970's,...
