Clifford Embleton (11 May 1931 – 4 July 1994) was a British geomorphologist. He was born in Bromborough at that time in Cheshire. He was the son of Arthur Thomas Embleton (1895-1954), a shipping clerk, and Constance Fitzgerald (1896–1948). He was educated at Birkenhead School and won an open exhibition at St John's College, Cambridge to read geography. He graduated in 1953 having won the Philip Lake Prize. His doctoral thesis in 1956 was on the glacial landforms of north Wales.
His research on glaciation in Wales and Norway led to the publication of a classic text on the subject, 'Geomorphology, Glacial and Periglacial' with Cuchlaine King, published by Hodder & Stoughton in May 1968, ISBN 0713153776 which was later substantially revised in 1975. He became a lecturer and then senior lecturer at Birkbeck College, London and University College, London and became a professor at King's College, London in 1982. He published 75 academic papers and books on glaciation, geomorphology in Europe, geomorphological hazards and a geographical study of Africa.

Book Description

Geomorphological Hazards of Europe book pdf by Clifford Embleton

At the 26th meeting of the International Geographical Union in Sydney, Australia, in August 1988, a Study Group on Rapid Geomorphological Hazards was set up under my chairmanship. It is worth noting that the original proposal was for the study of geomorphological hazards, broadly defined, and that the addition of the adjective "rapid" was not of my making. It will not be used in this book because any attempt at its definition will be quite arbitrary and pointless.
