STRUCTURE & PROPERTIES OF THE EARTH. In "Earth: The Power of the Planet" renowned science writers Iain Stewart and John Lynch use ground-breaking imagery and the latest scientific discoveries to explain how our unique and remarkable planet functions. After four and a half billion years the Earth is approaching old age - a perfect time to look back on an extraordinary life. Each chapter examines one of the Earth's most powerful forces - meteor impacts, plate tectonics, the ocean, the atmosphere and ice - and explores their central role in keeping the Earth alive. These are the forces that drive our planet, the powers that shape the Earth and affect its destiny. Spectacular graphics will present the familiar in a striking new light and will allow us to go back in time to discover the critical events in the Earth's past. This lavishly illustrated book will tell the epic story of the birth, life and future end of our amazing planet.
