Summary

For courses for non-majors in physical geology. Building on the tremendous reception to its parent text, Earth 6/e, the same groundbreaking media package is now integrated into the brief version of the best-selling introductory physical geology text. The GEODe II CD-ROM (included with every copy of the text), a text-dedicated website, and more provide complete, state-of-the-art multimedia support for both students and instructors. Essentials of Geology, 7/e retains the hallmarks professors have come to expect from Tarbuck and Lutgens' student friendly writing style, carefully crafted illustrations by Dennis Tasa that are both geologically accurate and visually appealing, and updated coverage of the most recent geologic events.
