Experience Earth Science with fresh eyes!

The leading authors in their respective fields—physical geology and extreme weather—Stephen Marshak and Robert Rauber bring years of classroom and research experience to this remarkable new book and media package. The authors' narrative approach to the content and innovative integration of new visual and interactive resources guides students to a clearer, more applicable understanding of the entire Earth System.

ENGAGING, APPLICABLE MATERIAL

Earth Science opens with the Big Bang and then introduces basic plate tectonics, so students immediately experience the "action" of the Earth as a system. Learning objectives are identified at the beginning of each chapter and assessed at the end through questions that range from simple review to thought-provoking applications. Additionally, every chapter contains "How Can I Explain" features, which provide simple, hands-on projects that illustrate a key concept.

AN EMPHASIS ON VISUALS

The text's narrative art program explains earth science concepts by breaking down processes into a series of steps. Brief annotations embedded throughout the figures explain each phase. Features such as "What a Scientist Sees" present real-world photos alongside drawings that simplify and amplify visual information, while "See For Yourself" features identify sample sites in Google Earth?.

UNMATCHED RESOURCES

Marshak and Rauber provide the tools needed for an engaging lecture, including animations, simulations, videos, and PowerPoint slides with art and lecture notes, all available to stream through the Interactive Instructor's Guide or the free coursepack. Smartwork5 integrates the textbook visuals, videos, and animations directly into questions, which are keyed to the learning objectives from the text, and works directly in an instructor's LMS.
