This textbook offers a user-friendly overview of our physical environment, placing a particular emphasis on readability, with clear, example-driven explanations.

This brief, paperback version of the best-selling Earth Science by Lutgens and Tarbuck is designed for introductory courses in Earth science. It's a highly visual, non-technical survey with broad, up-to-date coverage of basic topics and principles in geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. As in previous editions, the main focus in this textbook is to increase your understanding of basic Earth science principles.

16 chapter format offers readers essentials of geology, oceanography, and astronomy in a paperback format. Astronomy coverage is condensed to two chapters; meterology is covered in four chapters versus five in the big textbook.
