The renowned author team of Bernard Pipkin and Dee Trent is joined in this fourth edition of Geology and the Environment by Rick Hazlett of Pomona College. This stellar author team has the most field expertise, and the greatest depth of experience in bringing that field knowledge to the student, of any in this market. Pipkin/Trent/Hazlett's Geology and the Environment explores the relationship between humans and the geologic hazards, processes, and resources that surround us. A tested market leader with an emphasis on how geology can improve the human condition, this new edition updates demographic statistics and the problems of overpopulation, reviewing what we have to do in order to create a sustainable society for the next generation. The popular themes of remediation and prevention are highlighted in this new edition, which focuses on teaching students to analyze geological questions of pressing social and environmental importance through the acclaimed case study and citical thinking elements. To further enhance the student's learning experience, this edition is now fully integrated, on a conceptual level and with book-specific interactivities, through means of a free, brand-new student tutorial system called Environmental Geology Now. Environmental Geology Now is Web-based, assessment-driven, and completely flexible, offering a personalized learning plan based on each student's quiz results to help students focus on the concepts they don't yet understand.
