An update and expansion of the 2003 corrected second edition, this easily portable reference incorporates new research and amends outdated definitions. The dictionary includes terms related to geology, oceanography, paleontology, mineralogy, volcanology, climatology, geochemistry, petrology, and planetary science. New terms deal primarily with geomorphology and pioneering knowledge uncovered by recent advances in satellite technology.
