Covering all major topics of geology, the text relates all geologic processes to two major systems: the hydrologic system and the tectonic system. Each chapter employs Hamblin's unique statement-discussion-example approach, which enables students to focus on essential concepts and guides them to a greater understanding of the subject matter. The new edition discusses environmental issues in all relevant chapters and devotes new chapters of Mass Movement; Earth as a Planet: and Environment, Energy and Resources. Hamblin also incorporates his outstanding illustration program, featuring the field's newest and most current illustrations throughout the text.
