Earth's Changing Surfaces

Earth is a system that exists in dynamic equilibrium. The Earth of today does not look the same as it did millions of years ago. Even the Earth thousands of years ago has distinct differences from the Earth we know today. The Earth’s Changing Surface Interactive E-book* explores how Earth’s ever-changing surface is due to continuous natural processes such as tectonic activity, earthquakes, volcanic activities, weathering and erosion, and sedimentation and the reformation of rock. This e-book examines topics related to how and why these processes occur, and how elements cycle through the land, oceans, and atmosphere because of these processes.

*Interactive E-books are highly interactive, self-directed learning experiences designed to augment understanding of science content and pedagogy.These e-books include high-resolution images, animations, videos and interactive simulations.
