ESSENTIALS OF GEOLOGY, Fourth Edition is a shorter version of the authors' PHYSICAL GEOLOGY: EXPLORING THE EARTH, Fifth Edition text. In the same tradition, the authors present the content and material in a clear, consistent voice, focusing on plate tectonics in the first two chapters and offering more material on earth history than other texts in the market. The authors also draw the student into physical geology by providing engaging examples, as can be seen in the Cultural Connection boxes, a new pedagogical feature in this edition. Chapter opener objectives are now numbered so that students can easily recognize the crucial points of the chapter while reading and then they are numbered again in the chapter summary, for review. The Fourth Edition has numerous new photos that will be of interest to faculty and students alike and offers a new online student tutorial called GeologyNow. GeologyNow is the first assessment-centered student tutorial technology developed for the Geology market. The seamless integration of GeologyNow with chapter concepts emphasizes the connections between the content and students' own lives, through visual 3-D animations and chapter quizzes, in order to develop a greater appreciation for physical geology.

PHYSICAL GEOLOGY: EXPLORING THE EARTH, Sixth Edition, doesn't just explain physical geology and its processes; it places that knowledge within the context of human experience by consistently emphasizing relevance, resources, and the environment. With this edition, the authors seek to answer two central questions, How does the planet work? and Why is this important to know? By discussing the unifying theory of plate tectonics in detail early in the text, the authors are able to link diverse material by this common thread, providing a global perspective of Earth and allowing students to recognize seemingly unrelated geologic phenomena as a continuum of interrelated events within a complete planetary system. In addition to providing students with an understanding of geology and its processes, the authors consistently demonstrate how geology relates to the human experience. By asking the question What would you do? throughout the text, students are encouraged to explore their reactions to particular situations. New Geology in Your Life sections address relevant student concerns, particularly in the areas of environment and energy. And a new penultimate chapter on Resources and the Fate of the Earth ties together many of the concepts of particular interest to students. This edition is fully integrated with the online student tutorial system Physical GeologyNow. Physical GeologyNow uses a series of chapter-specific diagnostic tests to build a personalized learning plan for each student, allowing students to focus their study time on specific areas of weaknesses. Each personalized learning plan directs students to specific chapter sections and concept-driven multimedia tutorials designed to augment their understanding.

In this 6th edition of SUSTAINING THE EARTH Miller has added an on-line Web-based resource, called the Resource Integration Guide. Updated quarterly with CNN® Today video clips, animations, and articles from InfoTrac® College Edition instructors will be able to seamlessly incorporate the most current news articles and up-to-the-minute research findings to support classroom instruction and text presentations. The content in the 6th edition of SUSTAINING THE EARTHby Tyler Miller is everything you have come to expect and more. Two new chapters on basic ecology (Chapters 3 and 4) have been added to this edition to enhance this science-based book. This text differs from MillerÂ's comprehensive text, LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, 13th Edition, because there is much less detail and more integration of topics, with a different chapter order. For example, the following topics have been integrated into single chapters: human population dynamics and urban problems are in Chapter 5, nonrenewable and renewable energy resources are in Chapter 6, terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity are in Chapter 7, water resources and water pollution are in Chapter 12, solid and hazardous waste are in Chapter 13, and environmental economics, politics, and worldviews are in Chapter 14. For the first time ever in a Miller textbook, students will receive a CD-ROM, entitled Interactive Concepts in Environmental Science. This groundbreaking addition integrates nearly 100 engaging animations and interactions with chapter summaries, flashcards, and Web-based quizzes. Organized by chapter, students will find links to relevant resources, narrated animations, interactive figures, and prompts to review material and test themselves. Miller has remained true to his hallmark features, such as high quality end-of-chapter questions, an orientation toward prevention rather than clean-up, an integration of Web resources and video, and a balanced presentation of controversial environmental issues.
