From the Back Cover:

With its risks and benefits, the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River is a focal point for examining the interaction of humans and their environment. To explore the environmental issues raised, you need a sound understanding of the ideas, themes, and principles of physical geography. Now with this Media Version of Introducing Physical Geography, 3rd Edition students can develop the knowledge needed to fully appreciate the human impact on the environment and the resulting global change.

This Media Version features enhanced GeoDiscoveries web-based media. With GeoDiscoveries, students can:

  • Examine spatial relationships: A 3D interactive globe allows students to overlay different layers of geographic information, including plate tectonics, topography, political boundaries, and population.
  • Visualize difficult concepts: Animations of key diagrams and drawings from the text provide a virtual experience of difficult concepts. 
  • Experience geographic processes: Video clips provide real-world examples of geographic features, and put these examples into context with the concepts covered in the text.
  • Interact with simulations: Computer-based models of geographic processes allow students to manipulate data and variables.
  • Test their understanding: Interactive exercises give students an opportunity to test their understanding of key concepts, and explore additional visual resources.
  • Study more effectively: A Learning Styles Survey helps students identify their unique way of understanding and processing information.
