Abstract/Summary Pollen analysis can provide a number of valuable applications to a geomorphological context, which include providing both relative and absolute age control; significant environmental data in terms of past climates and depositional environments; and information on impacts of people on landforms and geomorphological processes. This chapter provides an overview of these applications, as well as a detailed examination of palynological laboratory techniques, pollen identification/counting, and the production/interpretation of pollen diagrams.
