Riassunto: Our planet is a growing, changing entity, with wind and water carving rock in one place and depositing new material in another. Erosion and deposition work hand-in-hand through such awesome forces as glaciers, floods, and tides to shape the earth. Discover the how and why of erosive forces, and how human activity has contributed to a dangerous acceleration of erosion around the world.
Dall'autore: Second only to my interest in minerals is my appreciation of scenic geologic features. For me, there is nothing more fun than coming across a rock forest at the end of a long day of backpacking, or climbing atop stone pinnacles on the edge of the sea-ask my hiking partners about my proclivity to stash little samples of mountains in my pack! I hope you enjoy the back matter in this book, "Amazing Landscapes." It's a list of places I'd love to set foot on (if I haven't already) and a great roadmap for using the Internet to check out some of the world's most stunning geologic formations. Perhaps it'll inspire you, too, to get out there and see the world!
