New Views on an Old Planet by Tjeerd H. van Andel

In this new revised edition of his award-winning book on the Earth? history, Professor van Andel updates and expands his earlier text, drawing on a wealth of new knowledge that has become available in the last decade. This book examines the major changes in the Earth? history - the evolution of the solid Earth, the changing oceans and atmospheres and the progression of life - to render a historical account of the Earth? evolution. Much new knowledge has been gained in the last decade, and while little material has been deleted, this new edition has grown to cover the key topics, including a chapter on how we can improve our grasp on geological time. Mindful of the current interest in global change, new sections describe the green-house effect and address its possible future ramifications. In prose that is both concise and compelling, New Views on an Old Planet: A History of Global Change makes Earth history appealing to the general reader. It will serve as an excellent text for introductory courses in the earth and environmental sciences.
