Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Murck's 3rd edition of Visualizing Geology maximizes the use of National Geographic Society photographs, maps, illustrations and video to bring dynamic Earth processes. From the ground-up, this text is designed to better meet the needs of those involved in the large mainstream Physical Geology course and working to attain a science credit. The text provides pedagogy to help readers better digest more material than they would in a conventional textbook. Moreover it provides information about geology as a discipline as a dynamic and growing science, to move readers beyond the idea that geology is simply about the memorization of terms related to dead rocks.
