Earth‎'‎s Evolving Systems‎:‎ The History of Planet Earth is intended as an introductory text that examines the evolution of the Earth and its life from a systems point of view‎.‎ The text covers major topics like the lithosphere‎,‎ hydrosphere‎,‎ atmosphere‎,‎ and biosphere‎,‎ and discusses how these systems interacted with each other and evolved through geologic time‎.‎ The author takes care to integrate the current state of our Earth systems with those of the past in an effort to develop students‎'‎ interests in Earth system in general‎.‎ It begins by examining the basics of Earth systems‎,‎ including discussions of sedimentation‎,‎ evolution‎,‎ stratigraphy‎,‎ and plate tectonics‎.‎ Part Two looks at the beginning of time with the origin of the Earth and discusses its early evolution‎,‎ through the origin of life and its evolution to multiculluraity‎.‎ The third section goes on to cover the Paleozoic through the Neogene eras‎,‎ discussing topics such as tectonics‎,‎ mountain building‎,‎ sea level‎,‎ climate‎,‎ life‎,‎ and mass extinctions in each era‎.‎ The final part moves on to the modern world‎,‎ discussing the interactions between humans and Earth systems‎,‎ with an emphasis on the climatic system‎.‎ Key Features of Earth‎'‎s Evolving System‎:‎ ‎- Presents the Earth as a continuously evolving and dynamic planet whose history consists of a succession of vastly different worlds very much unlike our modern Earth‎.‎ ‎- Discusses the scientific method in Chapter 1‎,‎ emphasizing how historical geology differs from the standard "scientific method" presented as the paradigm of experimental sciences and of all science‎.‎ ‎- Bridges traditional historical geology texts by discussing historical information in the context of the interaction and integration of Earth systems through geologic time by using the tectonic ‎(‎Wilson‎)‎ cycle as a unifying theme‎.‎ ‎- Concentrates on North America but offers a global perspective on Earth systems on processes such as orogenesis‎,‎ seaways‎,‎ and ocean circulation‎,‎ the evolution of life‎,‎ and mass extinction‎.‎ ‎- Discusses rapid climate change and anthropogenic impacts in the context of a continuously evolving Earth whose environments are now being altered by anthropogenic climate change‎.‎ ‎- End‎-of‎-chapter materials include‎:‎ general review questions‎,‎ more challenging "Food for Thought" questions‎,‎ key terms listing‎,‎ and a "Sources and Further Readings" section‎.‎ ‎- Boxes throughout the text highlight interesting bits of related information‎,‎ unusual occurrences‎,‎ or elaborates on material presented in the text
