Summary

For the introductory Earth science lab course. Although designed to accompany Tarbuck and Lutgens' Earth Science and Foundations of Earth Science , this manual could be used for any Earth Science lab course, in conjunction with any text. This versatile and adaptable collection of introductory-level laboratory experiences goes beyond traditional offerings to examine the basic principles and concepts of the Earth sciences. Widely praised for its concise coverage and dynamic illustrations by Dennis Tasa, the text contains twenty-two step-by-step exercises that reinforce major topics in geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.
