This text fulfills a science requirement for non-majors and students who plan to teach in elementary or high schools. Offering a uniquely strong emphasis on earth systems and an increased emphasis on environmental topics, EARTH SCIENCE AND THE ENVIRONMENT, Second Edition stands out among other earth science books. Discussion of how the solid earth, the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, and living organisms interact, as well as the effects of these interactions, is presented throughout the text. This approach, supported with numerous discussions of modern research, makes the book up-to-date and relevant to students. This text provides a rich overview of all Earth-related disciplines, including geology, geography, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. EARTH SCIENCE AND THE ENVIRONMENT gives students a sense of how the Earth functions as a system and how the various spheres interact.
