Presents an illustrated A to Z reference with approximately 700 entries on topics in the earth sciences including hydrology, geology, atmospheric sciences, oceanography, and more.
The basic concepts found in introductory earth science courses in high school and college are presented and explained.
Earth science is the study of the Earth, its origin, its structure, the changes it has undergone, and the past and future consequences of those changes. Its four major branches include meteorology, oceanography, astronomy, and geology. From the formulation of the three major principles of modern geology to the publishing of Principles of Geology, Earth Science profiles 10 influential people who made amazing discoveries in Earth science. Each chapter contains relevant information on the scientist's childhood, research, discoveries, and lasting contributions to the field and concludes with a chronology and a list of print and Internet references specific to that individual.
Earth Science for grades 5 to 8 is designed to aid in the review and practice of earth science topics. Earth Science covers topics such as Earth, the moon, the solar system, rocks and minerals, landforms, and weather patterns. The book includes realistic diagrams and engaging activities to support practice in all areas of earth science. The 100+ Series science books span grades 5 to 12. The activities in each book reinforce essential science skill practice in the areas of life science, physical science, and earth science. The books include engaging, grade-appropriate activities and clear thumbnail answer keys. Each book has 128 pages and 100 pages (or more) of reproducible content to help students review and reinforce essential skills in individual science topics. The series is aligned to current science standards.
We see it every day, yet we understand so little about Earth. From minerals to meteorites, this book covers every aspect of the science of our world. It breaks this complex discipline into four major sections: geology, oceanography, meteorology, and planetary science, and it gives an overview of the processes of each. Complete with interactive experiments and a glossary, this book makes the study of our planet—and other planets— easier than ever. From the Trade Paperback edition.
From the reviews: "All in all, Graham Borradaile has written and interesting and idiosyncratic book on statistics for geoscientists that will be welcome among students, researchers, and practitioners dealing with orientation data. That should include engineering geologists who work with things like rock fracture orientation measurements or clast alignment in paleoseismic trenches. It won’t replace the collection of statistics and geostatistics texts in my library, but it will have a place among them and will likely be one of several references to which I turn when working with orientation data.... The text is easy to follow and illustrations are generally clear and easy to read..."(William C. Haneberg, Haneberg Geoscience)
