9780393928150: Essentials of Geology (Second Edition)

Based on the best-selling Earth: Portrait of a Planet, Essentials of Geology offers the same engaging writing, spectacular artwork, and helpful pedagogy as the parent text in a more concise format.

This accessible introduction integrates traditional geologic concepts with the most recent theoretical advances, among them theories of plate tectonics and Earth systems science. The Second Edition has been carefully updated, including coverage of recent events such as Hurricane Katrina, and offers unparalleled multimedia tools for instructors and students.
