    The history of science is the study of the development of science, including both the natural and social sciences (the history of the arts and humanities is termed history of scholarship).Science is a body of empirical, theoretical, and practical knowledge about the natural world, produced by scientists who emphasize the observation, explanation, and prediction of real-world phenomena.

_____ theory is the currently accepted explanation of landform development. Equilibrium A drop in sea level or a tectonic uplift of the land surface causes stream ________. Although the study of geomorphology has been around since ancient times, the first official geomorphologic model was proposed between and by the American geographer William Morris Davis.

His geomorphic cycle model was inspired by theories of uniformitarianism and attempted to theorize the development of various landform : Amanda Briney. Theories of development: concepts and applications. From Locke and Rousseau to Piaget and Bandura, scholars have advanced our understanding of psychological development.

In this lively and 3/5(2). Davis Theory -William Morris Davis- Geomophology Chapter 1. William Morris Davis, an American geomorphologist, was the first geomorphologist to present a general theory of landform development.

LESTER CHARLES KING Lester Charles King ( – ) was an English geologist and geomorphologist known for his theories on scarp retreat. Each stage has distinct landforms and other properties associated with them, which can occur along the length of a river's upper, middle, and lower course.

Though the cycle of erosion was a crucial early contribution to the development of geomorphology, many of Davis' theories regarding landscape evolution, sometimes termed 'Davisian geomorphology', were heavily criticized by later Awards: Hayden Memorial Geological Award ().

This little book of landforms is perfect for teaching any type of landform. There are 5 different types of landforms covered with a blank page included for you to customize to meet your teaching needs.

Using a systems approach and draw­ ing upon a wide range of examples from around the world, Ahnert links empirical results to theoretical models of landform development.

The scope of the text is comprehensive,Author: Dorothy Merritts. Davis developed a theory of landform creation and erosion, which he called the "geographical cycle." This theory is more commonly known as the "cycle of erosion," or more properly, the "geomorphic cycle." His theory explained that mountains and landforms are created, mature, and then become : Matt Rosenberg.

Then there are those who have offered their take on language development from a psychological g: landform. landform change; it is a threshold that is developed within the geomorphic system by changes in the morphology of the landform itself through time.

It is the change in the landform itself that is most important, because until it has evolved to a critical situation, adjustment or failure will not occur.

The term Cited by: Models of Landform Development The landforms that are found on the surface of the Earth can be grouped into 4 categories: (1) Structural Landforms - landforms that are created by the solidification of large quantities of magma or by massive movements due or rock because of plate tectonics.

William Morris Davis, U.S. geographer, geologist, and meteorologist who founded the science of geomorphology, the study of landforms. In he began three years of service as a meteorologist with the Argentine Meteorological Observatory, Córdoba.

In he obtained a position with Harvard. The primary goal of glacial geomorphology is to provide physically-based explanations of the past, present and future impacts of glaciers and ice sheets on landform and landscape development.

To achieve this requires the integration of studies of landform with studies of the processes responsible for form development (over a wide range of.
