Designed for and by today's students in every detail, Earth2 was developed with students and faculty members to provide a more engaging and accessible solution that appeals to different learning styles at a value-based price. The 2nd edition of Earth has been thoroughly revised by Marc S. Hendrix of the University of Montana to ensure that the new edition is even more student-friendly and accessible than its predecessor. Over 75 new photos and 50 reworked illustrations offer an enhanced visual learning experience for a subject that is visual by its nature. This text includes all of the key concepts that your instructors require and a full suite of learning aids to accommodate your busy lifestyle including chapter-by-chapter study cards, self-quizzes, downloadable and printable flash cards, and more. Earth presents a rich overview of all Earth-related disciplines - from geology, hydrology, and oceanography to meteorology and astronomy. Earth explores the physical attributes of planet Earth and its environment, emphasizing the human choices we have made, and exploring the physical consequences of those choices in the context of Earth systems.
