The primary purpose of this text is to provide introductory geology students - who have had little or no science background - with a better understanding and appreciation of geology. Thompson & Turk's MODERN PHYSICAL GEOLOGY, Second Edition, stands out through its early coverage of plate tectonics (Chapter 2), the inclusion of special topic areas, and its beautiful design and writing style. It offers a complete overview of all topics in physical geology, including the most recent developments and research in areas of climate change and environmental issues.

Gray Thompson is an Emeritus Professor of Geology at the University of Montana where he taught Introductory Geology, Mineralogy, Summer Field Mapping and graduate courses in Clay Mineralogy and Shale Petrology.
