    Teaching and Learning Geology Just Got Easier with Earth's Evolving Systems, Second Edition

    Posted by Lindsay White on Jan 24, 2017 12:55:32 PM

    The recently published second edition of Earth's Evolving Systems: The History of Planet Earth makes teaching and learning geology easier. It explores the complex processes and interactions that have shaped our planet. Employing a systems perspective, this introductory text covers topics such as the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere, and discusses how these systems, plate tectonics, and life have interacted with each other and evolved through geologic time. This approach to Earth’s history integrates the study of modern Earth systems with past ones piquing students’ interest in the process. No other text bridges the gap between traditional historical geology and the behavior of Earth systems, and does so with higher quality art and illustrations. Capturing the dynamism of our planet’s fascinating history, Earth’s Evolving Systems: The History of Planet Earth, Second Edition provides the bedrock to understanding this exciting science.

    Review of Climatology, Third Edition: "it is the best text on the market for my course."

    Posted by Lindsay White on Dec 23, 2015 11:58:27 AM

    In planning for a fourth edition of our comprehensive climatology text for the upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate course, we conducted a revision survey with instructors who are currently or have very recently used the text in their course and instructors who have not adopted the current Third Edition.

    Specifically, instructors had this to say about the text’s depth of coverage and student-readability:

    …it is one of the most comprehensive treatments of the science of climatology that I have encountered…This is a solid textbook and is worthy of use in climatology courses.”

    – Timothy J. Wallace, Mississippi State University
