Summary

This book emphasizes the way human activities influence natural processes in the atmosphere, ocean, and solid earth. Interactions and fluxes of materials and energy between the solid earth, ocean, and atmosphere is also stressed to develop a whole earth perspective. Revised to incorporate more of a systems approach and to integrate the biogeochemistry cycles more fully. The book has been updated to use GIS to show the earth systems orientation, and includes more on biomes.
