DescriptionVisualizing Geology combines Wiley’s expertise in creating top quality textbooks with rich visual resources such as photographs, maps, illustrations, diagrammatic art, and videos, with the content and teaching expertise of our authors.
Visualizing Geology invites us to travel outside our familiar environment to distant parts of the world. With such photos, and with features such as Amazing Places at the end of every chapter, we seek to instill what words sometimes cannot: a sense of wonder about the planet we call home.
