About this book

This updated edition incorporates relevant developments in science, as well as coverage of newsworthy environmental events. It continues the author's practice of "putting the reader in the picture" of physical geography by putting the subject matter in the context of the student's everyday environment, and by stressing a visualization theme throughout the book.
