We see it every day, yet we understand so little about Earth. From minerals to meteorites, this book covers every aspect of the science of our world. It breaks this complex discipline into four major sections: geology, oceanography, meteorology, and planetary science, and it gives an overview of the processes of each. Complete with interactive experiments and a glossary, this book makes the study of our planet—and other planets— easier than ever.
EDWARD F. ALBIN, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of geology and astronomy at Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA. His work at the Fernbank Science Center includes instruction in all areas of Earth science.
