For introductory courses in Physical Geography or Atmospheric Resources.
Carrying forth Tom L. McKnight's well-known thematic focus on landscape appreciation, this best-seller fosters a solid understanding of Earth and its physical geography. Its clear, user-friendly writing style, superior art program, and abundant pedagogy appeal to a wide variety of students. The Ninth Edition represents a thorough revision and significantly updated content – yet it maintains the time-proven approach first presented by McKnight more than two decades ago.

"There is much to recommend this text. It is beautifully produced which makes it a delight to read. There are copious full-colour diagrams. Each chapter is finished with summary, key terms, questions and references. In addition to this, the book also has a series of animations on CD. These are extremely high quality animations which allow some of the more difficult aspects to be explained easily. Overall, this is a highly competent text with much to recommend it. Illustrations and CD are outstanding. ...the book represents a great resource for those needing to know more." Dr Paul S Ganderton, the Teaching Ecology Group's Book Review EditorFrom the Back Cover:
