Earth’s Oldest Rocks, Second Edition, is the only single reference source for geological research of early Earth. This new edition is an up-to-date collection of scientific articles on all aspects of the early history of the Earth, from planetary accretion at 4.567 billion years ago (Ga), to the onset of modern-style plate tectonics at 3.2 Ga. Since the first edition was published, significant new advances have been made in our understanding of events and processes on early Earth that correspond with new advances in technology. The book includes contributions from over 100 authors, all of whom are experts in their respective fields. The research in this reference concentrates on what is directly gleaned from the existing rock record to understand how our planet formed and evolved during the planetary accretion phase, formation of the first crust, the changing dynamics of the mantle and style of tectonics, life’s foothold and early development, and mineral deposits. It is an ideal resource for academics, students and the general public alike. Advances in early Earth research since 2007 based primarily on evidence gleaned directly from the rock record More than 50% of the chapters in this edition are new and the rest of the chapters are revised from the first edition, with more than 700 pages of new material Comprehensive reviews of areas of ancient lithosphere from all over the world, and of crust-forming processes New chapters on early solar system materials, composition of the ancient atmosphere-hydrosphere, and overviews of the oldest evidence of life on Earth, and modeling of early Earth tectonics

Earth's Oldest Rocks provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of early Earth, from planetary accretion through to development of protocratons with depleted lithospheric keels by c. 3.2 Ga, in a series of papers written by over 50 of the world's leading experts. The book is divided into two chapters on early Earth history, ten chapters on the geology of specific cratons, and two chapters on early Earth analogues and the tectonic framework of early Earth. Individual contributions address topics that range

Emphasizes modern understanding of the changing geography and environments of the earth's crust -- the outermost skin of rock in which the panorama of earth history is most clearly recorded. The treatment is chronological, beginning with our planet's origin at the birth of the solar system almost 5 billion years ago, and ending with the rise of modern humanity amid the fluctuating glacial climates of the last few hundred thousand years.

One of the few texts to integrate earth systems approach with impact of humans on the planet, this volume focuses on modern science and how it works. This approach gives students the tools they need for critical thinking, problem solving, and inquiry into the study of geology, oceanography, and astronomy. With everyday observations and examples, this text is highly readable and engaging.

A condensed version of Geology, 3e, this textbook provides succinct, focused explanations of key points-ideal for those who require a basic introduction to the field. As in the past, the Third Edition successfully engages students by concentrating on dynamic geologic processes rather than on rote memorisation of key terms. Three themes (plate tectonics, environmental geology and natural resources, and planetary geology) appear repeatedly throughout the text to highlight the connections between core concepts. Highlights of this third edition include: -

Planet Earth and the other bodies of the Solar System are 4.5 billion years old. They reside in a galaxy (the Milky Way Galaxy) that is 12-14 billion years old, and are part of a universe that is 13-15 billion years old. In Ancient Earth, Ancient Skies, G. Brent Dalrymple, a geologist and widely recognized expert on the age of Earth, reviews the evidence that has led scientists to these conclusions and describes the methods by which this evidence has been
