The Best selling eBook, “The Changing Earth: Exploring Geology And Evolution 7th Edition”, is a member of a rare breed of textbooks written specifically for courses covering both physical and historical geology. 3 interrelated themes (organic evolution, plate tectonics, and geologic time) help college students understand that our Earth is a complex, integrated, and continually changing system. In the new seventh edition, authors James S. Monroe and Reed Wicander integrate new content emphasizing the economic impacts of geology. Topics such as nuclear waste, fracking, and the threat of earthquakes are covered in new Geo-Impact boxes that stress real-world applications. Lauded for their clear writing style, the authors of this etextbook go beyond simply explaining geology and its processes; rather, they place that knowledge within the context of human experience by consistently emphasizing resources,¬†relevance, and the environment. New Global Geosciences Watch activities help college students learn how to use an extensive database of articles on geology that are updated several times a day and are available exclusively for users of this ebook.
