About this book

This classic textbook, now updated with the latest technology and most current information, is for both non-science majors and students contemplating a major in geology. Each chapter contains at least one of three types of boxes: In Greater Depth boxes cover interesting topics that are usually not an essential part of an introductory geology course. Environmental Geology boxes show how material pertaining to physical geology relates environmental concerns, such as oil spills, exploiting natural resources and mitigating natural disasters. Astrogeology boxes relate topics discussed in the text to what has been discovered on other planets or the solar system.
With Journey through Geology CD-ROM and Good Earth Token.
