Geology: Landforms, Minerals, and Rocks Series


Minerals and rocks are remnants of the planet's most ancient history and custodians of its geologic secrets. While a great deal remains to be discovered about Earth's origins and the earliest stages of its development, much of its past is indelibly chronicled in the inorganic material that comprises its surface and transforms its landscapes. These intriguing volumes examine the basic components of the planet, from topographic landforms to the molten rocks at Earth's core, and the geologic processes that affect them, as well as the various disciplines dedicated to deciphering these relationships.
