"Arthur Holmes' Principles of Physical Geology is recognized as a seminal work which has influenced generations of geology students from many countries of the world during the course of its first three editions. But in the light of continuing new discoveries from sophisticated geophysical exploration methods, deep drilling in the oceans and on land, and satellite imagery, many of the theoretical aspects have now undergone substantial revision." "This fourth edition returns to the structure of the original book. After a preliminary survey of the subject, it goes on to describe the external processes affecting the Earth's crust and then deals with the internal processes. Many of the final chapters, dealing with plate tectonics and continental drift, are entirely new. Each chapter has been reviewed or re-written by an internationally-recognized authority." "Two-colour diagrams aid the understanding of stratigraphy and map work, and a full colour plate section shows some spectacular examples of geological features from around the world."--BOOK JACKET
