Geomorphology is the study of the formation and evolution of landforms on Earth's surface. In the MD-DE-DC region, rain, snow, wind, vegetation, animals, and people all shape the landscape at different scales of time and space. Of particular interest in the region is the form and processes of rivers, a branch of the science termed fluvial geomorphology.
