Author: David Huddart; Tim Stott
Publisher: Chichester, West Sussex ; Hoboken, NJ : J. Wiley & Sons, 2010.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Earth Environments provides a comprehensive introduction to Earth's four key interdependent systems: the atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere, focusing on their key components, interactions between them and environmental change. Tailored specifically to undergraduate students, the book is a one-step textbook for major topics in geosciences, environmental science, physical geography, natural hazards and  Read more...

Tailored specifically to undergraduate students, the book is a one-step textbook for major topics in geosciences, environmental science, physical geography, natural hazards and ecology courses. Topics covered include: atmospheric systems; oceanography; endogenic and exogenic geological systems, biogeography and global environmental change. The impacts of climate and environmental change are integrated in a final summary chapter which draws together Earth's systems and their evolution and looks to the future of the planet."@en ;
