This second edition offers new material on planetary science, remote sensing, statistics, and sequence stratigraphy; plus substantial updating in mineralogy and geophysics. A new section of appendices includes wind strength scales; material, temporal, and chronostratigraphic units; and geologic, lunar, and Martian time scales.
