Summary

Berg's Visualizing Environmental Science engages readers through its visual, balanced approach, leaving them with a better understanding of the fundamentals of Environmental Science and the current events they apply to. Visualizing Environmental Science 4th Edition includes key content updates and an enriched emphasis on data analysis and graphing. The Fourth Edition also includes the development of a new Graphing Activity, allowing instructors to demonstrate the use of graphs in class and assign data analysis projects and questions outside of class. Also included is coverage on key developments since the publication of the 3rd edition, specifically the BP Oil Spill, Haiti, Fukishima Earthquake, Superstorm Sandy and other hot topics.
