Summary

With its strong focus on readability and engaging, instructive illustrations, this trusted bestseller returns in a new edition with a bold new look, new contributor Callan Bentley, interactive “SmartFigures,” and a highly anticipated learning path that facilitates active learning. Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology, 11/e maintains its highly visual, non-technical survey and up-to-date coverage of foundational physical geology principles. The authors’ emphasis on currency and relevance includes the latest thinking in the field, particularly in the dynamic area of plate tectonics.

Author Biography

Fred Lutgens and Ed Tarbuck have been good friends and colleagues since 1970. Between them, they have more than 57 years of experience teaching geology to undergraduates, and both have been recognized with awards as excellent and inspiring professors. They share a special interest in introducing geology to beginning students and a belief in the value of field experiences for students of all levels.

 

Lutgens and Tarbuck published their first college text, Earth Science , in 1976. That book, winner of the McGuffy Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association, is now in its thirteenth edition. In 1983, as the first edition of Earth was being prepared, gifted geology illustrator Dennis Tasa joined the author team. Since then the three have collaborated on more than twenty projects. Not only do Tarbuck, Lutgens, and Tasa work well together creatively; they also enjoy spending time in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Tasa’s New Mexico studio.

 

Tarbuck enjoys downhill skiing in Colorado, fly fishing near his childhood home in Northern Minnesota, and spending time in the Cascades. Lutgens is an avid runner, and when he can make the time, truly enjoys hiking the canyons of the Colorado Plateau. Although Lutgens and Tarbuck think alike on many issues, they don’t agree on everything. Lutgens is devoted to jazz and classical music, whereas Tarbuck prefers pop artists or a good country station.
