Das Ziel des Buches ist es, vor allem in der Deutschen Literatur auftretende Fachwörter aus der Geologie und ihren Grenzgebieten in möglichst umfassender, jedoch knapper Form zu erklären. Diese Grundkonz- tion verlangt eine sehr starke textliche Verdichtung, was sich vor allem bei den Texten der Sammelstichworte bemerkbar macht. Durch die Einführung dieser Erläuterungsmethode finden sich vielfach im Text Einzelsti- worte, die lediglich einen Hinweis auf die Erläuterung bei einem bestimmten Sammelstichwort aufweisen (z. B. : Axialgefälle? Querfaltung). Weiterhin wurde zur sinnvollen Verknüpfung von Stichwörtern im Text selber oder im Anschluss an ihn ein Hinweis auf verwandte Stichwörter gegeben (z. B. : bei ,Benthos‘, s. a. Nekton, Plankton). Weiterhin ist in der vorliegenden Auflage des Buches wieder – dem Wunsche zahlreicher Rezensenten folgend – in verstärktem Maße der Hinweis auf die jeweiligen Erstautoren der einzelnen Begriffe angebracht worden. Es ist hier zu beachten, dass die Signatur: (*L. MILCH, 1894) angeben soll, dass der genannte Autor diesen Begriff zum genannten Zeitpunkt in die wissenschaftliche Literatur eingeführt hat. Dabei wurde keine Rücksicht darauf genommen, ob der Begriff heute noch im gleichen Definitionssinne gebraucht wird. Vielfach gelang es trotz mühsamen Suchens nicht, den Erstautor zu entdecken (keine Angabe im Text oder – wenn möglich – der Vermerk: z. B. ,... schon bei C. F. NAUMANN, 1850‘), oder es blieb ungewiss, ob der Genannte wirklich der Erstautor gewesen ist (z. B. ,... wahrscheinlich A. G. WERNER‘ oder ,? *E. SUESS, 1883‘).

A fascinating and accessible introduction to the principles of physical and historical geology. For the millions who visit them each year, U.S. national parklands offer a glittering spectacle of natural wonders. But beyond the spectacular scenery, these national treasures have a much bigger, more awe–inspiring tale to tell––a sprawling story of upheaval and transformation, involving forces and time–spans almost beyond imagining. The purpose of this book is to provide you with the knowledge you need to read and interpret that story, and to make visits to the parklands even more special. Requiring no prior familiarity with the geological sciences, this region–by–region exploration of the U.S. parklands teaches the principles of physical and historical geology by example. It begins with a general introduction to all important concepts, terms, and principles. In the chapters that follow, the authors take you on a tour through the geological regions of the United States. Beginning with Hawaii and the Pacific borderlands and moving progressively eastward to the Appalachian Mountains and the coastal plains of the East Coast, they provide you with a geologist′s–eye view of the landforms, mountains, and bodies of water encountered in over 70 national parks and monuments, and tell the fascinating story of their evolution. Lavishly illustrated with nearly 300 stunning photographs and maps and featuring greatly expanded coverage of the geological story, history, and culture of U.S. parks and monuments, this new edition of Dr. David Harris′s classic text is an ideal introduction to the principles of geology for students and nature enthusiasts alike.

Washington is alive with geologic activity: It's home to the most active volcanoes in the lower 48, earthquakes regularly rattle the populated Puget Sound region, the potential of landslides increases with each soaking rain, and tsunami evacuation routes alert tourists in Olympic National Park to the active plate boundary just off the coast. The only geologic hazard Washingtonians need not fear, at least not with the continued trend of global warming, is another Ice Age flood. More than forty of the biggest floods known in the history of Earth scoured the Channeled Scabland of eastern Washington, the most recent only about 15,000 years ago. Since the first edition of Roadside Geology of Washington appeared on the book shelves in 1984, several generations of geologists have studied the wild assortment of rocks in the Evergreen State, from 45-million-year-old sandstone exposed in sea cliffs at Cape Flattery to 1.4-billion-year-old sandstone near Spokane. In between are the rugged granitic and metamorphic peaks of the North Cascades, the volcanic flows of Mt. Rainier and the other active volcanoes of the Cascade magmatic arc, and the 2-mile-thick flood basalts of the Columbia Basin. With the help of this brand new, completely updated second edition, you can appreciate spectacular geologic features along more than forty of Washington's highways.
