Dynamic Earth, 5 Edition introduces plate tectonics and the Earth system early in the text, giving students a sense of how earth processes and systems are interrelated. Both plate tectonics and the Earth system are revisited in a boxed section at the end of each chapter. Featuring stunning new art, the Fifth Edition is also completely current /5(27). Unlike other texts on the subject, Dynamic Earth provides enhanced coverage of the global tectonic system in a process-based systems approach. This approach provides students with a conceptual framework for Earth's tectonic system and helps them see the 'big picture', thus explaining how Earth’s surface features, climate system, and rock types are all shaped by the . Designed for the introductory Physical Geology course found in Geology, Earth Science, Geography, or Physical Science departments, Dynamic Earth: An Introduction to Physical Geology clearly presents Earth's dynamic geologic systems with their many interdependent and interconnected components/5(7). See also This Dynamic Planet, the map showing the Earth's physiographic features, current plate movements, and locations of volcanoes, earthquakes, and impact craters. The USGS also has created a website for teachers: This Dynamic Planet: A Teaching Companion.
