A Fresh and Modern Exploration of Environmental Geology Designed for the undergraduate, introductory environmental geology course for majors and non-majors alike, Environmental Geology Today presents the core geological principles and explores the effects of humanity on the physical environment. Contemporary case studies throughout encourage students to use their critical thinking skills to dissect the subject matter as part of their overall analysis. The numerous case studies are drawn from topical current events that relate to the chapter material and contain numerical data. Using simple math, graphing, and critical thinking, the authors challenge students to analyze aspects of the data, honing their basic math and analytical skills. With a focus on teaching students to think critically about our environment, Environmental Geology Today is a fresh and modern exploration of this ever-evolving field. Key Features: -Fosters students' development of analytical and critical thinking skills through the use of numerous contemporary case studies designed to engage students in the material and maintain their interest. -Math is introduced in a non-threatening, step-by-step manner, allowing students to identify their own errors early in the process, thereby gradually building confidence in their own mathematical abilities. -Covers the core undergraduate introductory environmental geology topics, including earthquakes, population growth, floods and other coastal hazards, land use, natural resources, and more. -Features global, national, and regional issues, but also shows students how to retrieve and use information to address critical local issues like population growth and development, air and water pollution, land use and waste disposal.
