Summary

A unique introduction to the holistic view of the Earth. Stresses the systems approach, showing the energy flows and links between the Earth's different parts -- the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and the solid Earth -- and the balance in the global environment that exists as a result of these interactions. Every chapter opens with a topical essay dealing with research on the subject matter and closes with a guest essay written by a researcher in the field. Special attention has been paid to select full - color artwork and photographs which illuminate discussions.
