Use dynamic media to bring Earth Science to life
Earth Science answers the need for a straightforward text that excites students about the world around them. Perfect for students with little-to-no background in science, the text covers geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy clearly and without technical jargon. Instructors and students praise Tarbuck, Lutgens, and Tasa for their uncomplicated writing, dynamic media that help visualize physical processes, stunning Illustration program that brings the “wow” factor, and valuable activities in Mastering Geology that provide activity-based learning to solidify students' understanding. The 15th Edition incorporates the latest data and applications from Earth Science, new data analysis activities, and an updated dynamic mobile media and Mastering Geology program.
