About the book:

Intended for a brief one-term course for which less detail is required, this text provides students with a basic understanding of geology and its processes and, more importantly, with an understanding of how geology relates to the human experience. Monroe and Wicander continue their tradition of making the subject fascinating and intriguing as they integrate many environmental and economic geology themes throughout the text. The book helps readers understand the relationship between the multiple physical processes of the earth--a "systems" approach--to instill enthusiasm and to help readers comprehend the concepts of the subject. The text also presents students with an overview of the geologic processes as a continuum of interrelated events, not as a series of facts to memorize. Monroe and Wicander, both respected scholars and authors, convey the excitement and sense of discovery inherent in the study of geology. This version of the text is packaged with the Earth Systems Today CD-ROM inside every copy of the text.
