An all-new, groundbreaking media package brings to life the latest edition of the best-selling Earth by Ed Tarbuck and Fred Lutgens. A text-dedicated website, new GEODe II CD-ROM (included with every copy of the text!), and more provide complete, state-of-the-art multimedia support for both students and instructors. Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology, Sixth Edition retains the hallmarks professors have come to expect from Tarbuck and Lutgens-a student-friendly writing style, carefully crafted illustrations by Dennis Tasa that are geologically accurate and visually appealing, and coverage of the most recent geologic events.
