‘I marvel at how the editors have compressed so much so clearly’ - Nature

The third edition of this leading dictionary offers wide-ranging and authoritative coverage of the earth sciences and related topics, including geology, oceanography, paleontology, minerology, volcanology, and planetary science as well as climatology, geochemistry, and petrology. The fully updated dictionary also provides additional coverage of process geomorphology and physical geography, as well as around 130 line drawings - of which more than 50 are new - to accompany descriptions of forms and processes. A new feature is the inclusion of entry-level web links.

Cross referencing of the 6,250+ clear and accessible entries has been checked and improved, making this comprehensive dictionary an easy-to-use and essential reference for students of geography, geology, and earth sciences and related disciplines.
