Summary

Ideal for undergraduates with little or no science background, Earth Science is a student-friendly overview of our physical environment that offers balanced, up-to-date coverage of geology, oceanography, astronomy, and meteorology.

The authors focus on readability, with clear, example-driven explanations of concepts and events. The Thirteenth Edition incorporates a new active learning approach, a fully updated visual program, and is available for the first time with Mastering Geology—the most complete, easy-to-use, engaging tutorial and assessment tool available, and also entirely new to the Earth science course.

The language of this book is straightforward and written to be understood. Clear, readable discussions with a minimum of technical language are the rule. Dennis Tasa, a gifted artist and respected geoscience illustrator, continues his outstanding illustrations in this edition. Truly an extension of the written story of geology, Tasa’s illustrations now show greater color and shading contrasts, more “narration,” and additional photo comparisons to guide students more clearly than ever before.
