Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for an introductory undergraduate course for students who have little background in science and may be taking the course to satisfy the school's breadth requirements. Covers the four primary disciplines of geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy. Much color is used, sometimes strikingly, throughout for illustrations and graphs. The CD-ROM contains a dynamic program that reinforces key concepts with animations, tutorials, and interactive exercises. Considerable support material is available for instructors. The editions between 1976 and 1982 were published by Merrill and those in 1991 and 1994 by Macmillan; the previous edition was in 1998. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
