Earth and Environmental Science: The Preliminary Course by Christopher Huxley, Iain Imlay-Gillespie

Earth and Environmental Science is a comprehensive course text for HSC Earth and Environmental Science students. It is specifically designed to meet the requirements of the Preliminary Earth and Environmental Science course in NSW and build a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding for the Year 12 HSC course. Students undertaking other courses in Biology and Environmental Science will find the text of value. The text provides a detailed coverage of both global and Australian systems and issues arising from the interaction between humans and the environments they inhabit. It covers the four core modules of the Preliminary course: Planet Earth and its Environment, The Local Environment, Water Issues and The Dynamic Earth. A feature of the text is that related issues are cross referenced in the text. Each chapter features a set of clearly stated knowledge, understanding and skills outcomes related to the content of the chapter.
