9780393196566: Essentials of Geology (Third Edition)

A substantial revision of an already successful text, the Third Edition of Essentials of Geology combines an accurate and engaging narrative with exceptional visual and pedagogical elements. The optional, free package item includes the two-page guide from the text and a worksheet for each chapter’s Google Earth™ Geotour.

It is supported by a complete learning and teaching package. Innovative media, such as Geotours―which take students on virtual field trips using Google Earth™―make it possible for instructors to bring real-world geology to life in the classroom.

Perfect as homework, lab, or extra-credit assignments, the workbook asks students to observe and measure real-world geologic sites, thereby deepening their understanding of important concepts in the textbook.

Using high-resolution satellite and aerial photography, Google Earth™ creates spectacular 3-D images of the planet’s surface. Appearing in the book as two-page spreads, Geotours provide students with free and open access to this powerful resource―with links to over 200 real-world geologic sites that illustrate concepts from every chapter of Essentials of Geology. Map overlays, figures, and photographs from the text and beyond further promote learning by helping students make connections between textbook lessons and real-world geology. Geotours make great lecture launchers or can be assigned as homework, lab, or extra-credit assignments using the worksheets that coordinate with each chapter in the text.

Geotours are accompanied by a complete, innovative media package with 3-D cinema-quality simulations that bring difficult concepts to life; over 60 animations; film clips; course-ready PowerPoint lecture outlines; Clicker Questions, and more.
