In recent years, promoted by tremendous demands from national economic construction, great progress has been made in geomorphology and Quaternary geology in China. This article generalizes the recent progresses, mainly those in the period 2006-2008, including the progress in the fields of tectonic landforms, fluvial landforms, eolian landforms, glacial landforms, estuary and coastal landforms and Quaternary environmental evolution. Furthermore some suggestions are proposed to develop the discipline in the following aspects: (1) Studies of basic theories; (2) Research into applied geomorphology and Quaternary geology concerning the key construction projects; (3) Experimental studies, both in laboratories and in field surveys; (4) Training of young geomorphologists and Quaternary geologists.
