A clear understanding of the Earth's past evolution can provide the
key to its possible future development. The Earth: Its Birth and
Growth explores the evolution of the Earth over 4.6 billion years
using basic reasoning and simple illustrations to help explain the
underlying physical and chemical principles and major processes
involved. Fully updated and revised, this rigorous but accessible
second edition includes three completely new chapters. It
incorporates exciting developments in isotope geology, placing
results within a wider framework of Earth evolution and plate
tectonics. Some background in physics and chemistry is assumed, but
basic theories and processes are explained concisely in
self-contained sections. Key research papers and review articles
are fully referenced. This book is ideal as supplementary reading
for undergraduate and graduate students in isotope geochemistry,
geodynamics, plate tectonics and planetary science. It also
provides an enjoyable overview of Earth's evolution for
professional scientists and general readers.
