Publisher Comments:

For introductory courses in Earth Science in departments of Geology, Geography, Atmospheric Sciences, and Education.

 

The twelfth edition of Earth Science offers a user-friendly overview of our physical environment with balanced, up-to-date coverage of geology, oceanography, astronomy, and meteorology for the undergraduate student with little background in science.  The emphasis is on readability, with clear example-driven explanations.  The twelfth edition takes full advantage of the subject’s visual appeal, with discussions reinforced by incredible color photos and superb illustrations by Earth science illustrator and geologist Dennis Tasa.
