    One thought on “The Earth System”

    1. I only had to read a few for school, that is why I skipped through it. Very good text book though. Last day of class today :)

    2. I read this book for my Earth Dynamics and Systems class. It wasn't too awful for a textbook, but it wasn't great either.

    3. Our textbook for EAS1600 back in Fall 2003. Lots of good detail and coverage, although it'd have been difficult to synthesize the disparate material without our professor.
