Today's society is concerned with a multitude of events affecting the Earth system, ranging from natural processes such as ocean circulation, weather systems, and geophysics to concerns like acid rain, ecotoxicology, and the greenhouse effect. To understand the impact of these events on the Earth system and to resolve environmental problems, knowledge of all the earth sciences and how they interact is essential.**The Encyclopedia of Earth System Science is the first encyclopedia to comprehensively cover, in one place, all the earth sciences--including atmospheric science, biogeochemistry, climatology, ecology, geology, geophysics, glaciology, hydrology, meteorology, mineralogy, oceanography, petrology, and numerous other fields. It treats the Earth as a system of interactive processes and describes how these processes affect and are affected by each other.**Complete in four volumes, the Encyclopedia provides a broad base of knowledge. An international group of experts, all distinguished in their fields, have written in-depth articles with extensive cross-referencing to stress the interconnection between all earth processes. The glossaries, concise subject definitions, brief outlines, and recent bibliographies found in each article also provide the reader with quick access to each topic.
