Physical Geology Today features a process-oriented style and assumes no pre-requisites. We hope to help students understand the relevance of the concepts, processes and principles presented to their daily lives. We accomplish this goal by stressing the interdependence of Earth’s systems through an emphasis on the interactions and interplay between the Earth’s solid surface (the geosphere) and its watery envelope (the hydrosphere), the air we breathe (the atmosphere) and life (the biosphere).
Thank you again for your interest in this title and providing us with your feedback. We hope that this text will help students identify and understand the ways in which geology is constantly occurring around them.
