Essentials of geology by Stephen Marshak( Book )

21 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The topics covered in this book have been arranged so that students can build their knowledge of geology on a foundation of overarching principles. Thus, the book starts by considering how the Earth formed, and how it is structured, overall, from its surface to its center. With this basic background, students can delve into plate tectonics, the grand unifying theory of geology. Plate tectonics appears early in the book, so that students can use the theory as a foundation from which they can interpret and link ideas presented in subsequent chapters. Knowledge of plate tectonics, for example, helps students understand the suite of chapters on minerals, rocks, and the rock cycle. Knowledge of plate tectonics and rocks together, in turn, provides a basis for studying volcanoes, earthquakes, and mountains. And with this background, students are prepared to see how the map of the Earth has changed through the vast expanse of geologic time, and how energy and mineral resources have developed. The book's final chapters address processes and problems occurring at or near the Earth's surface, from the unstable slopes of hills, down the course of rivers, to the shores of the sea and beyond. This section concludes with a topic of growing concern in society--global change, particularly climate change"--Provided by publisher
Earth structure : an introduction to structural geology and tectonics by Ben A Van der Pluijm( Book )

[This text] is an introductory geoscience textbook that weaves the theory of plate tectonics and the concept of Earth System science.... The book helps students understand the origin of the Earth and its internal structure, the nature of plate movement, the diversity of Earth's landscapes, the character of materials that make up the Earth, the distribution of resources, the structure of the air and water that surround our planet, the evolution of continents during the Earth's long history, and the nature of global change through time.... Students reading [this book] will gain insight that can help address practical and political issues too. -Pref
