This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. This text focuses on helping non-science majors develop an understanding of how geology and humanity interact. Ed Keller—the author who first defined the environmental geology curriculum—focuses on five fundamental concepts of environmental geology: Human Population Growth, Sustainability, Earth as a System, Hazardous Earth Processes, and Scientific Knowledge and Values. These concepts are introduced at the outset of the text, integrated throughout the text, and revisited at the end of each chapter. The Fifth Edition emphasizes currency, which is essential to this dynamic subject, and strengthens Keller’s hallmark “Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Geology,” unifying the text’s diverse topics while applying the concepts to real-world examples.

Written for the introductory, non-science student. Also appropriate for physical geology courses emphasizing an environmental perspective. From the author who defined the environmental geology course, this text presents geologic processes in context with their impact on humans, our lives and societies. The author's goal is to both create informed citizens and nurture an understanding of geologic science. *NEW- Focus on Five Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Geology- The text recognizes that (1) the majority of these students will never take another geology or science course, and (2) the primary goal of most instructors, therefore, is not to train scientist but to help create an informed citizenry. The Five Fundamental Concepts are designed to provide a memorable, transportable framework of understanding that the student can take from the class and use throughout life to make informed choices about their interaction with and effect on geologic processes. *NEW- Chapter 4 Introduction to Natural Hazards. *NEW- Chapter 15 Air Pollution. *NEW- Chapter 9 in the first edition covering Water: Resource and Pollution now split into two chapters, Chapter 10 Water Resource and Chapter 11 W

For many students with no science background, environmental geology may be one of the only science courses they ever take. Living With Earth: An Introduction to Environmental Geology is ideal for those students, fostering a better understanding of how they interact with Earth and how their actions can affect Earth's environmental health. The informal, reader-friendly presentation is organized around a few unifying perspectives: how the various Earth systems interact with one another; how Earth affects people (creating hazards but also providing essential resources); and how people affect Earth. Greater emphasis is placed on environment and sustainability than on geology, unlike other texts on the subject. Essential scientific foundations are presented - but the ultimate goal is to connect students proactively to their role as stakeholders in Earth's future.

Introduction to Geography: People, Places, & Environment, Sixth Edition introduces students to the major tools, techniques, and methodological approaches of the discipline through new applied and visual features that engage students and reinforce real-world connections. The authors emphasize the integration of various aspects of geographic processes and systems by discussing what happens in one set of geographic processes and how that affects others. For example, what happens in economic systems affects environmental conditions; what happens to climate affects political dynamics.
