Elements of Physical Geology: An Interactive Experience
Choose Your Format
Physical geology is an exciting and dynamic scientific discipline. However, students who take physical geology in an online format often fail to experience the science fully because they are forced to complete virtual, non-tactile lab exercises that are uninspiring and only marginally instructive.
Elements of Physical Geology: An Interactive Experience fuses and textbook and lab manual to change all of that!
In the 15 chapters that follow, the student will not only read about the wonders of geology, but he/she will also complete hands-on lab exercises designed to reinforce important concepts as well as motivate student learning. We trust you will thoroughly enjoy this interactive experience and want to learn more about the Earth and its processes.
