Applications and Investigations in Earth Science, 8th Edition

By Edward J. Tarbuck, Frederick K. Lutgens, Dennis G Tasa, Kenneth G. Pinzke

Published by Prentice Hall

Published Date: Mar 19, 2014

Description

Designed to accompany Tarbuck and Lutgen's Earth Science and Foundations of Earth Science, this manual can be used for any Earth Science lab course, in conjunction with any text. The Eighth Edition minimizes the need for faculty instruction in the lab, freeing instructors to interact directly with students. Widely praised for its concise coverage and dynamic illustrations by Dennis Tasa, the text contains twenty-three step-by-step exercises that reinforce major topics in geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringGeology does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MyLab/Mastering search for ISBN-10: 0321934539 / ISBN-13: 9780321934536. That package includes ISBN-10: 0321934520 / ISBN-13: 9780321934529 and ISBN-10: 0321943422 / ISBN-13: 9780321943422. MyLab/Mastering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
