Synopsis: Two volumes from Salem's series, Earth Science, Physics & Chemistry of the Earth is a detailed look at the dynamics of the earth's mass and how its chemistry produces change.

This two-volume set's scope is broad. For instance, the set goes beyond the basics of climate change to explore many underlying factors surrounding the issue, including geothermometry and geobarometry, glacial events, and mass extinction theories. The set also explores earthquakes, their engineering, hazards, predictability, and the role of fault and mantle dynamics.

Designed to meet the needs of students in Earth science at the high school and undergraduate levels, these two volumes represent a focused, revised and heavily updated edition from Salem Press's five-volume Earth Science of 2001. Now more than ten years later, the updated editions will provide students with clearly explained information on the most important and widely discussed issues relating to Earth science.

Earth Science: Physics & Chemistry of the Earth, comprising over 125 lengthy essays on basic topics, is designed to provide an introduction to our latest understanding of the Earth.

All of the essays begin with ready-reference top matter, including a summary statement in which the contributing author explains why the topic is important to the study of the Earth. A listing of principal terms and their definitions helps to orient the reader to the essay. The text itself is broken by informative subheadings that guide the readers to areas of particular interest. An annotated and updated bibliography close each essay referring the reader to external sources for further study that are of use to both students and non specialists. Finally, a host of cross-references directs the reader to other essays that offer information on related topics.

At the end of every volume, several appendices are designed to assist in the retrieval of information. As mentioned above, the alphabetical list of contents lists all essays alphabetically by title, followed by page numbers. The categorized list of contents, more detailed than the general table of contents breaks the essays into useful categories to offer readers access to related essays. The set also includes more than 1,000 illustrations tables, charts, drawings, and photographs that display basic principles, phenomena and geological features of our world and the solar system.

From Booklist: This two-volume set is part of a four-series Earth Science set from Salem Press (eight volumes total) and would be a beneficial addition to high-school and undergraduate libraries. They include more than 125 lengthy articles on basic topics and are designed as an introduction to understanding the earth. The A–Z entries begin with ready-reference at the top, including a summary statement explaining why the topic is important to the study of the earth. Next is a list of principal terms and their definitions. The text is then divided into subheadings, making it easier to find particular information. At the end of each essay, there is an external source list for further reading and cross-references that might be of interest to the reader. The appendixes at the end of volume 2 include a glossary; a bibliography; a chart of common earth minerals; a list of earth facts (surface, size, mass, density, gravity, etc.); a historical time line of geophysical history; and a subject index. There are numerous photos, illustrations, maps, charts, and tables. Both volumes include a table of contents, a chart with common units of measurement, and a categorical list of contents at the beginning, making it easy to find a particular subject. Included in the purchase price of the volumes is complimentary online access to the full content of the print reference. This would be a great reference set for any high-school or public library. --Ester Burke
