The Changing Face of the Earth

Book 3, Exploring science (multitouch)

This book is available for download with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. Apple Books on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


Seen from space the Earth looks deceptively serene, but it's a violently dynamic place. Its rocky surface frequently experiences earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The Earth us not just an inert body - it is a continuously operating machine that harbours life. This multitouch book provides an introduction to the theory of plate tectonics, and offers a range of interactive activities, videos and quizzes to help you explore how the movement of the planet's outer rocky layers create, destroy and modify its surface.  A student at A-level, International Baccalaureate, or K-12 level will be stretched by this content and teaching. If in doubt, download the free sample.

The open university never ceases to produce such good quality literature, that doesn't cost a fortune.
I found this book to be very informative for those interested or wishing to learn more about our Earths history, geology and environmental science at higher level plus.
I definitely recommend this interesting book.
