Synopsis

The physical geography course enrolls the largest number of students in the geography discipline. The new fifth edition will have a stronger pedagogical program, a beautiful visual appeal and will be completely updated. Gabler's new fifth edition emphasizes the student's involvement in the learning process and promotes a student's interaction with the text. Features: * Increased emphasis on environmental hazards inlcudes new text on flooding (essay, Chapter 5), tornadoes (Chapter 6), volcanism and earthquakes (Chapter 11), mudflows (essay, Chapter 13), desertification (essay, Chapter 15), and tsunamis (essay, Chapter 17). * Career Vision Interviews (were called Interviews on 4/e) provide students with a glimpse of some career opportunities in geography-related fields. (Examples: Laura Hartwig, Cartographer and Greg Forrester, TV Weather-person and meteorologist). * The Environment boxes deliver the theme of human-environment interaction and show the application of physical geography to problem-solving for the environment. New to this edition: * New showcase art highlights key concepts in physical geography and emphasizes the systems approach--a hot topic in physical geography.

* New expanded Chapter Review includes three new sections: * Define and Recall lists the key terms in each chapter, because terms are grouped according to their conceptual relationships rather than their alphabetical ones, students can understand material rather than simply memorize it. * Discuss and Review requires students to undertake a thorough reconsideration of chapter content. * Consider and Respond urges students to apply their knowledge of physical geography in new, and when possible, problem-solving situations, presenting physical geography as a problem-solving science. * New Interactive Captions guide students as they study maps and diagrams. Students have a difficult time understanding maps, and this feature stimulates the reader to think more critically about what they are reading. * New end-of-chapter Art Icons encourage students to interact with the artwork in the chapter to respond to the question. * Map Interpretation Series include a topographic map with text and questions that provide students with the skills needed to interpret maps.
