Summary

For introductory Earth Science courses found in departments of Geology, Geography, or Atmospheric Sciences for students with little or no exposure to college-level science. Earth Science offers a user-friendly overview of our physical environment with balanced, up-to-date coverage of geology, oceanography, astronomy, and meteorology. The emphasis is on readability, with clear, example-driven explanations refined by over twenty years of instructor and student feedback. The text takes full advantage of the subject's visual appeal. Discussions are reinforced with a superb collection of color photos, along with illustrations by highly respected Earth science illustrator, Dennis Tasa. A tightly integrated media package further extends students' understanding of Earth science.
