Summary The Times (Obituaries, 4 August 2008) reported that "John Thornes was one of the most eminent and influential physical geographers of his generation." John's keen interest in understanding landform processes and evolution was furthered through a variety of methods and informed across a range of disciplinary boundaries. In particular he pushed for better integration of monitoring, theoretical and simulation modelling, field and laboratory experimentation and remote sensing techniques. Although dominated by an interest in the Mediterranean region and problems of land degradation, his research a
