This authoritative and best-selling physical geology text continues to emphasize the theme of dynamic change to our environment, landscapes. Dynamic The dynamic earth book, 5 Edition introduces plate tectonics and the Earth system early in the text, giving students a sense of how earth processes and systems are interrelated.

Both plate tectonics and the Earth system are revisited in a boxed section at the end of each chapter. Featuring stunning new art, the Fifth Edition is also completely current /5(27). Unlike other texts on the subject, Dynamic Earth provides enhanced coverage of the global tectonic system in a process-based systems approach.

This approach provides students with a conceptual framework for Earth's tectonic system and helps them see the 'big picture', thus explaining how Earth’s surface features, climate system, and rock types are all shaped by the.

The modern plate tectonics theory, which has become widely accepted since the s, states that the earth's outer layer, or lithosphere, is broken into several large slabs called plates, which hold the continents and oceans, are slowly but constantly moving around the planet.

The movement of the plates not only supports our understanding that continents are not fixed. Dynamic Earth (originally known as Our Dynamic Earth) is a not-for-profit visitor attraction and science centre in Edinburgh and is Scotland's largest interactive visitor attraction.
