Robert Burns, now retired, spent 40 years teaching and researching in universities around the world. From training students to be geography teachers in University Departments of Education, and ‘A’ level examiner in physical geography, he later used his deep interest in the psychological aspects of student learning and motivation to study and qualify as a psychologist. In retirement, the climate ‘wars’ redirected his interest back to Earth sciences. Burns is an experienced author with over 20 texts published by major publishing houses including Longmans, Sage, Allen and Unwin, Kluwer, and Addison-Wesley.
