Earth's Restless Surface

ISBN 978 0 565 09236 8 
Packed with colour photographs, maps and diagrams, this book reveals how to recognise past events recorded in rocks and considers the challenge of predicting the Earth’s future. How do natural forces erode and sculpt the Earth’s landscape? How are solid rocks worn away and how are they recycled? What influences climate change and what effect does this have on our natural environment? This newly revised edition of Earth’s Restless Surface provides an up-to-date introduction to the changing surface of the Earth, from the solid crust to the waters, atmosphere and living things that interact with it. Earth’s Restless Surface explains in accessible language how the planet is being constantly remodelled by powerful natural forces such as wind, water and ice. It recreates past landscapes and explains how studying the evidence of past climates is a vital part of learning about the Earth’s climate system, and how and why change comes abou
