From the Publisher:

Highly acclaimed and praised as the best teaching text available, Earth's Dynamic Systems is the only introductory text that fully integrates the two major energy systems of Earth: the plate tectonic system and the hydrological system. Using these systems to explore fundamental geological processes, the seventh edition of this leader continues to offer Hamblin's trademark "question- statement-discussion-example" format and unrivaled art program.

From the Back Cover:

There are two major pathways for the flow of energy and matter on Earth: (1) the hydrologic system—the circulation of water over Earth's surface and through its atmosphere powered by energy from the Sun, and (2) the tectonic system—the movement of material powered by heat from Earth's interior. These two unifying themes form the backbone of Earth's Dynamic Systems, providing a logical, well-crafted, spectacularly illustrated introduction to physical geology.


GeoLogic—Geologists have a unique way of "reading" the landscape and rocks. These essays illustrate in words and images how modern geologists interpret the world around us.

Updated and Enhanced Student CD-ROM: Includes dozens of high-quality animations, photographs, and videos.

  • Guided Tours: These animated tours of Earth's major landforms illustrate key concepts in a way the printed word and still pictures cannot.
  • Slideshows: Written and photographed by the authors, the slideshows expand on the text with additional photographs and explanations.
  • Videos and animations: Gathered from geologists around the world, these illustrate both fundamental concepts and how modern geologists study Earth
