Explaining the Earth
‘ (…). The book describes in a crystal clear and simple manner the 'ballet of continental drift', the formation of mountains and shapes of islands such as arcs and hotspot archipelagos. Water and air, the vital substances of our environments, make up our atmosphere and hydrosphere and relate directly to our weather and climate.
This sympathetic and well illustrated booklet specially aims at young people but is informative for any age. One could say that anybody leaving school should have this knowledge in their back pocket. Especially in our time, as we are more and more confronted with the basic processes on our planet, climate being only one of them. Humans, and life in general, cannot do without the conditions that only the Earth can offer us.’
