9780130183712: Earth's Dynamic Systems (9th Edition)

Suitable for freshman/sophomore Physical or Introductory Geology courses found in departments of geology, Earth science, or environmental science. Hamblin and Christiansen help students to see the global view of Earth, teaching them to look at the world as geologists do. The text is structured around two main themes: The first examines Earth as a geologic system with vast interconnected subsystems, while the second theme focuses on how the human species fits into Earth's integrated system. This is still the only introductory text that fully integrates the two major energy systems of Earth: the plate tectonic system and the hydrologic cycle. The Ninth Edition continues to offer a stunning and sophisticated art program that is virtually unmatched by any other geology text.

From the Publisher:

Highly acclaimed and praised as the best teaching text available, Earth's Dynamic Systems is the only introductory text that fully integrates the two major energy systems of Earth: the plate tectonic system and the hydrological system. Using these systems to explore fundamental geological processes, the seventh edition of this leader continues to offer Hamblin's trademark "question- statement-discussion-example" format and unrivaled art program.

From the Back Cover:

Earth's Dynamic Systems, Ninth Edition uses the hydrologic system and the tectonic system as the foundation to help build an understanding of physical geology.
