This stellar author team has the most field expertise, and the greatest depth of experience in bringing this field of knowledge to the student, of any in this market. In the 6th edition of this tested market leader the authors have fully integrated coverage of how climate change and global warming impact geologic processes. Both human and non-human-induced climate change topics are discussed in a newly developed chapter called The Earth System and Climate Change. The acclaimed Case Studies feature at the end of chapters now includes 10 cases on climate change and global warming topics.

Bernard W. He received his doctorate from the University of Arizona and is a licensed geologist and certified engineering geologist in the state of California. After graduation he worked for the U. Army Corps of Engineers on a variety of military and civil projects, from large dams to pioneer roads in rough terrain for microwave sites. He has been a consulting engineering geologist as well as a university teacher since He currently lectures on geology on cruise ships and at last count, he and his wife Faye have been involved in 26 cruises throughout the world.
They have three grown children and five grandchildren and live south of Los Angeles on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. After graduating from college he worked in the petroleum industry where his geologic skills were sharpened with projects in Utah, Arizona, California, and Alaska. When the company decided to send him to Libya he decided it was time to become a college geology teacher.
He has taught for 28 years at Citrus Community College in Glendora, California, and along the way has worked for the National Park Service, done field research on glaciers in Alaska and California, visited numerous mines in the United States and Germany, picked up a Ph. Richard W. Hazlett is the winner of and Wig Awards for teaching excellence at Pomona College.
He is the first Stephen M. Pauley Chair in Environmental Analysis at the college, receiving this appointment in His main research interests involve volcanic stratigraphy, igneous petrology and resources, but most recently has been exploring land use issues focusing on the American West. He is a co-author with Bernard Pipkin and Dee D. He is particularly interested in the impact of humans on the built and natural landscape as well as science education at all levels.
Paul teaches a variety of courses including Earth Hazards, Geohydrology, and Geomorphology. Research interests include the rate of bedrock weathering involves field work in such locations as central Australia and the Canadian arctic.
He manages the Landscape Change Program, an NSF-supported digital archive of historic Vermont Landscape images used for teaching and research, available at uvm. In , Paul was awarded the Donath medal as the outstanding young scientist of the year by the Geological Society of America; he has since received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation specifically for integrating scientific education and research.
In , Paul was awarded the NSF Distinguished Teaching Scholar award in recognition of his on-going attempts to integrate these two strands of his academic life.
Together, Paul, his graduate and undergraduate students, and collaborators have 50 publications in refereed journals and books.
