Through coverage of basic geologic principles, HISTORICAL GEOLOGY, Sixth Edition, shows you how historical geology relates to your own experience
Three major themes – time, evolutionary theory, and plate tectonics – enhance your understanding of historical geology and show you how scientists have been able to unravel Earth's history. By asking the question "What would you do?" or "What do you think?" throughout the text, you will be encouraged to understand how historical geology affects individuals as well as society as a whole.
