Physical Geology: Earth Revealed


Physical Geology: Earth Revealed is appropriate for introductory physical geology classes. This text, which includes the same information as the market-leading Physical Geology - 12th edition, by Plummer/Carlson, is for the instructor who prefers to cover plate tectonics early in the course. The eighth edition has been updated to include the most current information from the various sub-disciplines that comprise physical geology. The book's purpose is to clearly present geologic processes so that students can understand the logic of scientific methods. This text features an outstanding art program and a proven, accessible writing style. This text continues to be used as the official textbook to accompany the Annenberg CPB distributed telecourse for physical geology. Hide synopsis

International Edition? Caveat Emptor!!!

by Jonathan G on Jul 9, 2012

-- It is true that the international edition has all the same information as the "domestic" edition one would purchase in the United States. -- It is true that this edition will be much(!) less expensive. -- The chapters are in a different order! This can make completing assignments tricky. Some of the figures are positioned differently than the domestic edition. -- If you opt for the international edition, be prepared to sit down with the regular version to get a list of which chapters in one correspond to which chapters in the other. -- It is still a great way to get your work done, you'll just need to work a little more upfront. -- The content of the book is pretty good. The professor who saw it actually preferred the chapter order in the international edition! Jonathan G.
