Produktbeschreibung
Minerals and rocks form the foundation of geologic studies. Thisnew textbook has been written to address the needs of students atthe increasing number of universities that have compressed separatemineralogy and petrology courses into a one- or two-semester Earthmaterials course. Key features of this book include: * equal coverage of mineralogy, sedimentary petrology, igneouspetrology and metamorphic petrology; * copious field examples and regional relationships with graphicsthat illustrate the concepts discussed; * numerous case studies to show the uses of earth materials asresources and their fundamental role in our lives and the globaleconomy, and their relation to natural and human-inducedhazards; * the integration of earth materials into a cohesiveprocess-based earth systems framework; * two color thoughout with 48 pages of four color. Readership: students taking an earth materials, orcombined mineralogy and petrology course in an earth science degreeprogram. It will also be useful for environmental scientists,engineering geologists, and physical geographers who need to learnabout minerals, rocks, soil and water in a comprehensiveframework. A companion website for this book is available at: www.wiley.com/go/hefferan/earthmaterials.
