Building on the tremendous reception to its parent text, Earth 6/e, the same groundbreaking media package is now integrated into this brief version of the best-selling introductory physical geology text. The GEODe II CD-ROM (included with every copy of the text), a text-dedicated web site, and more, provide complete, state-of-the-art multimedia support for both students and instructors. Essentials of Geology, 7/e retains the hallmarks professors have come to expect from Tarbuck and Lutgens-student-friendly writing style, carefully crafted illustrations by Dennis Tasa that are both geologically accurate and visually appealing, and updated coverage of the most recent geologic events.
