Geomorphology is the scientific study of landforms and landscapes. It is closely related to soil science, hydrology, geology and environmental science, and is being increasingly applied in planning, mining and hydrological sectors, and within environmental consultancy and tourism. In the late 20th Century geomorphology focused on the investigation of surface processes and the way these processes create small-scale landforms. The plate tectonics revolution in the earth sciences and the beginning of planetary exploration have, however, greatly broadened the scope of landform analysis.

Geomorphologists seek to understand why landscapes look the way they do, to understand landform history and dynamics and to predict changes through a combination of field observations, physical experiments and numerical modeling.
