Descrição

In this Very Short Introduction, Jan Zalasiewicz gives a brief introduction to the fascinating field of geology. Describing how the science developed from its early beginnings, he looks at some of the key discoveries that have transformed it, before delving into its various subfields, such as sedimentology, tectonics, and stratigraphy. Analyzing the geological foundations of the Earth, Zalasiewicz explains the interlocking studies of tectonics, geophysics, and igneous and metamorphic petrology and geochemistry; and describes how rocks are dated by radiometric dating. Considering the role and importance of geology in the finding and exploitation of resources (including fracking), he also discusses its place in environmental issues, such as foundations for urban structures and sites for landfill, and in tackling issues associated with climate change. Zalasiewicz concludes by discussing the exciting future and frontiers of the field, such as the exploration of the geology of Mars.

  • (4/5)
    his reading was in fact mechanical and hard to follow, I tried to finish it and I did. very informative, I just wanted to add geology to the fields I have some sort of knowledge in. Now to the next short introduction! ?
  • (1/5)
    Probably a good book but the Narration is so stilted and mechanical it is unlistenable.
  • (5/5)
    Concise overview of the discipline of geology. It’s amazing to think how old a planet is, and how much from our past future. This book also covers geology of other planets. A perfect introduction, especially if you are beginning to start geology studies. I think we give your framework from which you can go into more detail on.

    Dense little book, very clear and packed with interesting history and science.
