"Geology is as much about climate as it is about tectonics, and in this edition we describe the geologic processes that unite these historically separate fields. Our discussion of such core concepts as the rock cycle, metamorphism and exhumation, and landscape evolution help illustrate important links. Further, we consider the concept of geologic time and the historical development of Earth. Understanding Earth is designed to bring the worldview of the working geologist to an audience not only new to this specific field, but in many cases to science in ts aren't merely presented with concepts and processes--they come to learn how we know what we know, and how that knowledge impacts their lives as citizens and helpful /5(46).

Cambridge Core - Climatology and Climate Change - Understanding the Earth System - edited by Sarah E. Cornell. An introduction to exciting advances in the earth sciences. Research by oceanographic geophysicists has led to the wide acceptance that continents drift about the face of the Earth and the concept of sea-floor spreading has culminated in an all-embracing theory known as plate tectonics.

This theory draws sea-floor spreading, continental drift, crystal structures and world patterns of seismic. Emphasis is given to the importance of Earth system feedback mechanisms and the role of the biosphere.

The book explains advances in modelling, process understanding and observations, and the development of consistent and coherent studies of past, present and 'possible' climates.
