As carbon dioxide levels have doubled, why is the climate no warmer now that it was a thousand years ago? Why are deserts sometimes present along the subtropics, and sometimes not? Why was there an ice age? These are just some of the questions the author seeks to answer. The book brings the reader right up to date with the latest developments in geology. It deals with the geological history of rocks and with landforms and volcanicity. Examples are drawn from around the world including the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite and Hawaii. This third edition has new appendices dealing with the mountains of the USA, the geological structure of China and the geological history of Australia. The book includes a review of the history of geology, including the contributions of James Hutton, William Smith, Charles Lyell, Louis Agassiz, Richard Owen, Charles Marsh and Edward Cope, Bruce Heezen and Marie Tharp, and modern specialists such as Jennifer Clack.
