Offering a non-technical approach to earth science, Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology (10th Edition) engages students with its extensive coverage, readable writing style, and smart illustrations. Authors Edward J. Tarbuck and Frederick K. Lutgens, together with the acclaimed illustrator, Dennis Tasa, kept the book current by updating the content to meet today's geological truths. It offers a significantly revised chapter on climate change while touching various phenomena that affect the earth. This introductory book on earth's geology offers discussions of plate tectonics, matter and minerals, volcanoes, magma, igneous rocks, and intrusive activities to these geological elements. Soil and weathering are also discussed, as well as other types of rocks (sedimentary, metamorphic). Students will get a lot from the discussion of geologic time and crustal deformation, as well as the discussion of divergent and convergent boundaries. Other important topics discussed include glaciers, desserts, shorelines, running, and groundwater, as well as the hot issue of global climate change. The final chapters talk about earth's evolution through geologic time, planetary geology, and energy and mineral resources. This well-researched and well-illustrated book makes earth science accessible to students and readers. It offers a non-technical approach to the discussion of the most complex concepts and theories surrounding geology. Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology (10th Edition) ISBN 9780321663047is a collaboration between three talented minds. Lutgens and Tarbuck have been working together since 1970, boasting over 57 years of combined experience in teaching the subject. They have written a number of textbooks, the first of which is called Earth Science, which they released in 1976. The team is joined by Dennis Tasa, a top geology illustrator with decades of experience in preparing illustrations for some of the most effective bestselling texts in science.
