Murphy (geology, St. Francis Xavier U., Nova Scotia) and Nance (geology, Ohio U.) give the undergraduate student a comprehensive, integrated introduction to the various sciences used to study the Earth<-->geology, biology, chemistry, and physics<-->and show how these are interdependent. The book's seven parts examine the foundations of modern geology and the structure of the solid Earth, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere, the evolution of the biosphere over geologic time, the Earth's place within the solar system and the cosmos, and the balance that exists between the Earth's resources, concluding with a discussion of environmental responsibility. This package includes 40 interactive exercises in geology on CD-ROM. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
