The Earth Through Time, 11th Edition, by Harold L. Levin and David T. King chronicles the Earth's story from the time the Sun began to radiate its light, to the beginning of civilization. The goal of The Earth Through Time is to present the history of the Earth, and the science behind that hsitory, as simply and clearly as possible. The authors strived to make the narrative more engaging, to convey the unique perspective and value of historical geology, and to improve the presentation so as to stimulate interest and enhance the reader's ability to retain essential concepts, long after the final exam.

Laboratory Studies in Earth History

Author: Harold Levin,Michael Smith

Publisher: McGraw-Hill Science/Engineering/Math

ISBN: 9780073050720

Category: Science

Page: 288

View: 5715

Utilizing actual case studies and field photographs, this successful lab manual covers the full spectrum of historical geology sediments, plate tectonics, paleontology, and petrology in flexible, self-contained units. This manual has been developed for use in both non-majors and combined courses in historical geology. The exercises emphasize the principles and methods by which geologists discover the origins and changing nature of our planet. These exercises or "studies" will help students understand how ancient conditions can be read from rocks and fossils, how geologic forces at the surface and within the planet can alter the environment, and how events of the past can be placed within an integrated chronological sequence. The exercises are designed for students who may not intend to specialize in geology. This does not mean, however, that the treatment is superficial, nor that it cannot give adequate preparation for students pursuing an academic major in the earth sciences.

The new fourth edition of Fundamentals of Geomorphology continues to provide a comprehensive introduction to the subject by discussing the latest developments in the field, as well as covering the basics of Earth surface forms and processes. The revised edition has an improved logically cohesive structure, added recent material on Quaternary environments and landscapes, landscape evolution and tectonics, as well as updated information in fast-changing areas such as the application of dating techniques, digital terrain modelling, historical contingency, preglacial landforms, neocatastrophism, and biogeomorphology. The book begins with a consideration of the nature of geomorphology, process and form, history, and geomorphic systems, and moves on to discuss: Endogenic processes: structural landforms associated with plate tectonics and those associated with volcanoes, impact craters, and folds, faults, and joints. Exogenic processes: landforms resulting from, or influenced by, the exogenic agencies of weathering, running water, flowing ice and meltwater, ground ice and frost, the wind, and the sea; landforms developed on limestone; and long-term geomorphology, a discussion of ancient landforms, including palaeosurfaces, stagnant landscape features, and evolutionary aspects of landscape change. Featuring over 400 illustrations, diagrams, and tables, Fundamentals of Geomorphology provides a stimulating and innovative perspective on the key topics and debates within the field of geomorphology. Written in an accessible and lively manner, and providing guides to further reading, chapter summaries, and an extensive glossary of key terms, this is an indispensable undergraduate level textbook for students of physical geography.

Page: 640

View: 3266

Exploring Earth Science by Reynolds/Johnson is an innovative textbook intended for an introductory college geology course, such as Earth Science. This ground-breaking, visually spectacular book was designed from cognitive and educational research on how students think, learn, and study. Nearly all information in the book is built around 2,600 photographs and stunning illustrations, rather than being in long blocks of text that are not articulated with figures. These annotated illustrations help students visualize geologic processes and concepts, and are suited to the way most instructors already teach. To alleviate cognitive load and help students focus on one important geologic process or concept at a time, the book consists entirely of two-page spreads organized into 20 chapters. Each two-page spread is a self-contained block of information about a specific topic, emphasizing geologic concepts, processes, features, and approaches. These spreads help students learn and organize geologic knowledge in a new and exciting way. Inquiry is embedded throughout the book, modeling how scientists investigate problems. The title of each two-page spread and topic heading is a question intended to get readers to think about the topic and become interested and motivated to explore the two-page spread for answers. Each chapter is a learning cycle, which begins with a visually engaging two-page spread about a compelling geologic issue. Each chapter ends with an Investigation that challenges students with a problem associated with a virtual place. The world-class media, spectacular presentations, and assessments are all tightly articulated with the textbook. This book is designed to encourage students to observe, interpret, think critically, and engage in authentic inquiry, and is highly acclaimed by reviewers, instructors, and students.

Life on Earth

Understanding Who We Are, How We Got Here, and What May Lie Ahead

Author: Mike Dooley

Publisher: Hay House, Inc

ISBN: 1401952429

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

Page: 224

View: 5333

In his best-selling books and hugely popular “Notes from the Universe” daily e-mails, Mike Dooley teaches that the first step in changing our lives is to understand the nature of our very presence here on earth —the truth about who we are, how we got here, and the power we wield. Ultimately, Mike teaches that we are divine, eternal creators for whom all things are possible, here by choice, and we shape all of our life’s experiences through the focus of our thoughts, our words, and the actions we take. Yet there are nuances, clouded by history and warped by those with agendas, that, if not understood, can sabotage our progress and keep us stuck in circumstances that seem out of our control. Mike unpacks these subtleties with his trademark irrepressible humor and joy in this new explorer’s guide to “the jungles of time and space.” Life on Earth probes the mysteries and magic of our reality, from past civilizations to modern times, with an eye to the immediate future, offering an insider’s view of how we humans create our experience on earth literally from the ground up, as Mike pulls back the curtain on: • What it means to say that “thoughts become things” • Religions, secret societies, and what the truth really is • How to make sense of natural disasters and manmade tragedies • The ultimate goal of life on earth (it’s simpler than you think) As one of the featured teachers in The Secret, Mike is an internationally recognized expert in the science of deliberate living and conscious creation, known for taking a rational approach to even the deepest mysteries. Life on Earth is filled with insight, inspiration, and practical tools for mastering the game of life and learning how to build a better world.
