Synopsis

This is a newly revised edition of the Natural History Museum's classic introduction to the processes and products of change to the Earth's surface. It explains in accessible language how the planet is being constantly remodelled by powerful natural forces and guides us through geological time and space to recreate past landscapes. With photographs, diagrams and maps, this timely book has also been updated with all the latest information about the human impact on climate change and considers the challenge of predicting the future.
