What is the real role of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? Why is the climate no warmer now that it was a thousand years ago? Why do we have deserts? Why are they sometimes there, 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, Monument Valley, Yosemite and Hawaii. To assist walkers there are simplified geological sketches of the English Lake District, the Peak District, Devon, Bagshot Heath, the Weald, South Wales, the North Pennines, the Isle of Wight and Scotland. This third edition included new appendices on mountain building in the USA, the geological structure of China, and the geological history of Australia. It has 100 illustrations.
