From the Publisher:

From the very first page, the student is drawn into excitement of contemporary physical geography and the challenge of exploring the home planet. This text offers a distinctive integration of human-Earth relationships, an applied flavor, scientific correctness, and extraordinary currency. The new edition builds on the great success of the first two editions with its thorough, current coverage of physical geography. Geosystems presents the most up-to-date information about Earth's physical systems available in an introductory text--all viewed through the spatial analysis approach unique to physical geography.
