The 12-title Wonders of Earth Science series covers subjects from the Earth's Interior, Mineralogy, Meteorology, Energy, Glaciers to Understanding Earthquakes and the Ozone Blanket. Students will develop a basic understanding of the fundamentals of Earth Science and work their way up to more complex subjects. Imagine the Ice Age - a cold and desolate time when one-third of the globe was buried under massive sheets of ice that carved and shaped much of the land we live on today. Remnants of those ice sheets, called glaciers, remain to this day. Dynamic and powerful, they continue to alter the land, gouging out valleys, molding hills and carrying rocks and other geological debris thousands of miles from their native soil. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.
