About this book

This introductory geology text describes geological processes within the framework of plate tectonics, introducing students to the basic concepts in this field. Recent discoveries in marine geology, geochemistry, geophysics and planetary geology are systematically woven into discussions of traditional topics such as geomorphology, sedimentation, petrology, volcanism and structural geology. The book describes the methods and techniques employed by geologists in the field, relating geologic subjects to environmental problems. Learning aids include a separate introduction for each of the book's three parts, a brief abstract preceding each chapter, plus summaries in list form, exercises and bibliographies for each chapter.
