Summary: "There is a pressing need for a single book that compresses the most significant aspects of material previously presented in multiple standard rigorous courses to meet the generally less demanding requirements of much of today's job market. Hefferan and O'Brien have accomplished this task with Earth Materials . This work should fill an important niche for lower- to intermediate- level earth and/or environmental science courses." ( CHOICE , January 2011) "In recent years an increasing number of geoscience departments have elected to combine their introductory mineralogy and petrology courses into a single, one-term "earth materials" course. As a result there has been a need for a textbook that integrates both topics, and this is the niche that Hefferan and O'Brien seek to fill with Earth Materials . Their book provides a clearly written and well-illustrated overview of mineralogy and petrology that is suitable for an undergraduate audience." (Jeffrey H. Tepper, American Mineralogist , Volume 97, 2012). Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Minerals and rocks form the foundation of geologic studies. Excellent textbooks currently exist in mineralogy, igneous petrology, sedimentary petrology and metamorphic petrology. It is not our intention to compete with these textbooks. However, many universities have compressed separate mineralogy and petrology courses into a one- or two-semester Earth Materials course. Presently, no textbook adequately addresses the needs of an Earth Materials course. We have developed a textbook that encompasses the study of minerals, rocks as well as soil and water. This Earth Materials textbook is geared towards a one- or two-semester Earth Materials course, a combined mineralogy and petrology course, and can also be used by environmental scientists, engineering geologists, planners and laypersons interested in learning about minerals, rocks, soil and water in a comprehensive framework. We have attempted to create a readable, well illustrated textbook that is comprehensible and that weaves different disciplines into one cohesive fabric.

Minerals and rocks form the foundation of geologic studies. This new textbook has been written to address the needs of students at the increasing number of universities that have compressed separate mineralogy and petrology courses into a one- or two-semester Earth materials course.
Key features of this book include:
Readership: students taking an earth materials, or combined mineralogy and petrology course in an earth science degree program. It will also be useful for environmental scientists, engineering geologists, and physical geographers who need to learn about minerals, rocks, soil and water in a comprehensive framework.
