"Visualizing Earth Science" relies heavily on the rich visuals to expand on concepts for students and solidify their understanding of them. This accessible format, coupled with the assumption that students have little knowledge of earth science, allows students to navigate through the material with greater ease - the goal being to help them understand the world around them and interpret what they see in a meaningful, accurate and exciting way.Authors Zeeya Merali and Brian Skinner focus on visual learning in their debut of their first edition, "Visualizing Earth Science." This text weaves illustrated timelines throughout to exemplify how concepts fit together and develop over time. Students will quickly learn difficult concepts with this innovative, visual approach.
