From the Publisher:

From Aa toZweikanter, this popular dictionary has now been revised and updated. This edition includes over 1,000 new terms plus:

-accurate definitions without technical jargon

-many word origins

-hyphenation and pronunciation guide

-commonly used abbreviations

-a geologic time and life chart

The definitions in this book are drawn largely from the autoritative 36,000-term Glossary Of Geology, to which nearly 150 specialists from all fields of the geosciences contributed. Both the Glossary and this Dictionary were prepared as a service of the American Geological Institute, a federation of geoscience societies united to provide information to the science community and the public.

About the Author:

Founded in 1948, the American Geosciences Institute, formerly the American Geological Institute, is a nonprofit federation of 51 organizations and associations representing the Earth sciences. They publish EARTH Magazine, a monthly source of scientific energy and environment news.
