    Offering comprehensive content for the historical geology course, HISTORICAL GEOLOGY provides students with an understanding of the principles of historical geology and how these principles are applied in unraveling Earth's history. Students will learn and understand the underlying causes of why things happened and the way they did, and how all of Earth's systems and subsystems are interrelated. Students will understand the relevancy of Earth's history as part of a dynamic and complex integrated system, not as a series of isolated and unrelated events

    California Geology (2nd Edition)

    California Geology (2nd Edition) Lowest new price: $147.83
    Lowest used price: $51.09
    List price: $180.20
    Author: Deborah Harden

    This interesting book uses plate tectonics as its central theme; it acquaints readers with California geology. Basic principles in the beginning of the book and tables of highlights for each province enable the reader to understand the whole picture of catastrophic national disasters, California history, mining methods, and societal impacts; it brings the lessons of geology closer to the everyday context of California life. After a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of geology, this book then focuses on the geological highlights of California (young volcanoes, deserts, the Mojave Desert, the Sierra Nevada, the Klamath Mountains, water, the Great Valley, the coast Ranges, earthquakes, faults, and seismic safety, the transverse ranges, and the peninsular ranges). The inside back and front covers of the book contain a wealth of readily available information, with comprehensive geologic, fault, relief, and mountain range maps. A handy desk reference for geologists, this book is also a source of information for anyone interested in the evolution of California's terrain.

    The Science of Wine: From Vine to Glass

    The Science of Wine: From Vine to Glass Lowest new price: $29.13
    Lowest used price: $29.99
    List price: $39.95
    Author: Jamie Goode
    Brand: University of California Press

    Praise for the First Edition

    “Winemaking these days is a complicated process that cannot always be understood intuitively. Fortunately Jamie Goode’s The Science of Wine: From Vine to Glass explains some of the terms that critics toss around. . . . Mr. Goode manages to make then lively and provocative.”—Eric Asimov, New York Times

    A thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition of this essential and groundbreaking reference gives a comprehensive overview of one of the most fascinating, important, and controversial trends in the world of wine: the scientific and technological innovations that are now influencing how grapes are grown and how wine is made. Jamie Goode, a widely respected authority on wine science, details the key scientific developments relating to viticulture and enology, explains the practical application of science to techniques that are used around the world, and explores how these issues are affecting the quality, flavor, and perception of wine. The only complete and accessibly written resource available on the subject, The Science of Wine: From Vine to Glass engagingly discusses a wide range of topics including terroir, biodynamics, the production of “natural” or manipulation-free wines, the potential effect of climate change on grape growing, the health benefits of wine, and much more. A must-have reference for a wide audience of students, winemakers, wine professionals, and general readers interested in the science of wine.

    The Second Edition features:

    * A fresh new design with 100 color illustrations throughout

    * Discussions of some of the most hotly debated issues including genetically modified grapevines, sulphur dioxide, the future of cork, and wine flavor chemistry

    * New chapters on soils and vines, the science of grape varieties, oxygen management and wine quality, red wine production techniques, and the role of language to describe the subtleties of taste

    Introduction to Environmental Geology (5th Edition)

    Introduction to Environmental Geology (5th Edition) Lowest new price: $217.25
    Lowest used price: $47.93
    List price: $227.80
    Author: KELLER

    This text focuses on helping non-science majors develop an understanding of how geology and humanity interact. Ed Keller—the author who first defined the environmental geology curriculum—focuses on five fundamental concepts of environmental geology: Human Population Growth, Sustainability, Earth as a System, Hazardous Earth Processes, and Scientific Knowledge and Values. These concepts are introduced at the outset of the text, integrated throughout the text, and revisited at the end of each chapter. The Fifth Edition emphasizes currency, which is essential to this dynamic subject, and strengthens Keller’s hallmark “Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Geology,” unifying the text’s diverse topics while applying the concepts to real-world examples.

    Roadside Geology of Oregon

    Roadside Geology of Oregon Lowest new price: $16.83
    Lowest used price: $16.62
    List price: $26.00
    Author: Marli B. Miller
    Brand: Miller Marli B

    When the first edition of Roadside Geology of Oregon was published in 1978, it was revolutionary―the first book in a series designed to educate, inspire, and wow nongeologists. Back then, the implications of plate tectonic theory were only beginning to shape geologic research and discussion. Geologists hadn’t yet learned that Oregon’s Klamath and Blue Mountains were pieces of far-traveled island arcs and ocean basins that had been piled against the growing North American continent. Steaming volcanoes, ghost forests, recent landslides, and towns heated with geothermal energy attest to Oregon’s still-prominent position at the edge of an active tectonic plate.
    Author, photographer, and geologist Marli Miller has written a completely new second edition based on the most up-to-date understanding of Oregon’s geology. Spectacular photographs showcase the state’s splendor while also helping readers understand geologic processes at work. Roadside Geology of Oregon, Second Edition, is a must-have for every Oregon resident, student, and rockhound.
