Publisher Comments:

Oxford's fully revised and updated Dictionary of Earth Sciences, Second Edition, provides over 6,000 entries, making it the most authoritative and wide-ranging dictionary of earth sciences available in a single volume. The dictionary's exceptionally broad coverage includes climatology, economic geology, geochemistry, oceanography, palaeontology, petrology, and volcanology.

This second edition offers new material on planetary science, remote sensing, statistics, and sequence stratigraphy; plus substantial updating in mineralogy and geophysics. A new section of appendices includes wind strength scales; material, temporal, and chronostratigraphic units; and geologic, lunar, and Martian time scales. The Dictionary of Earth Sciences, Second Edition is an essential reference for all students of the subject, especially those in interdisciplinary courses.
