About this book

Integrating the principles of the natural sciences, engineering, and economics as they pertain to the global environment, it explains the complex couplings and feedback mechanisms linking the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere.
`With the appearance of Earth Systems: Processes and Issues, edited by geologist Gary Ernst, a distinguished group of scientists have brought earth-system science into focus for students and professionals alike. The volume is an elegant and at times exciting introduction to the aims, methods, and results arising from earth-system studies. I recommend it strongly.' Dr. Brian J. Skinner, Yale University
