Publisher Comments:

Written for an introductory one-semester geology course, this text is a brief version of Thompson/Turk's MODERN PHYSICAL GEOLOGY. Thompson/Turk's brief text offers professors a more streamlined alternative to the longer, more detailed introductory text. INTRODUCTION TO PHYSICAL GEOLOGY emphasizes human-environment interactions and discusses the latest research in physical geology. Beautiful illustrations and clear writing style set this text apart from other geology texts.
