About this book

Designed to accompany Tarbuck and Lutgens' Earth Science and Foundations of Earth Science, this manual can also be used for any Earth science lab course and in conjunction with any text. It minimizes the need for faculty instruction in the lab, freeing instructors to interact directly with students. Widely praised for its concise coverage and dynamic illustrations by Dennis Tasa, the text contains twenty-four step-by-step exercises that reinforce major topics in geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

The 9th Edition features a new lab on Volcanism and Volcanic Hazards, new MasteringGeology Project Condor videos, Mobile Field Trips, and MapMaster 2.0 interactive maps – all to boost student understanding of Earth’s processes. This versatile and adaptable collection of introductory-level laboratory experiences goes beyond the textto examine the basic principles and concepts of the Earth sciences through strong examples and dynamic media.

Biography

Frederick Lutgens and Edward Tarbuck have been good friends and colleagues since 1970. Between them, they have more than 57 years of experience teaching geology to undergraduates, and both have been recognized with awards as excellent and inspiring professors. They share a special interest in introducing geology to beginning students and a belief in the value of field experiences for students of all levels. Lutgens and Tarbuck published their first college text, Earth Science, in 1976. That book, winner of the McGuffy Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association, is now in its fourteenth edition. In 1983, as the first edition of Earth was being prepared, gifted geology illustrator Dennis Tasa joined the author team. Since then the three have collaborated on more than twenty projects. Not only do Tarbuck, Lutgens, and Tasa work well together creatively; they also enjoy spending time in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Tasa's New Mexico studio. Tarbuck enjoys downhill skiing in Colorado, fly fishing near his childhood home in Northern Minnesota, and spending time in the Cascades. Lutgens is an avid runner, and when he can make the time, truly enjoys hiking the canyons of the Colorado Plateau. Although Lutgens and Tarbuck think alike on many issues, they don't agree on everything. Lutgens is devoted to jazz and classical music, whereas Tarbuck prefers pop artists or a good country station.
