This text, which includes the same information as the market-leading Physical Geology 10th edition, is for the professor who wants to use the same valuable information and engaging format but in a different teaching sequence. Coverage of plate tectonics is moved to the beginning of the book. The text is also used as the official Annenberg CPB distributed telecourse for physical geology.The beautiful new art program and interactive writing style will grab students' attention and further their interest in the subject.
