Developed by JASON Learning — in partnership with the National Geographic Society, NOAA, the Smithsonian Institution, and the U.S. Department of Energy — Geology: Tectonic Fury takes students on a journey to examine the geologic forces at work on our planet. Students work alongside leading researchers to investigate Earth’s icy peaks, liquid metal core, and strange and beautiful landforms. Geology affects so many aspects of our lives, from energy production to the food we grow. Understanding the structure of Earth, its history, and the processes that act on is vital for our survival. Geology: Tectonic Fury explains key concepts related to geology — including rocks and minerals, the rock cycle, weathering and erosion, soil, Earth’s history, fossils, plate tectonics, earthquakes, and volcanoes — in an engaging and exciting format. With 134 pages of breathtaking, full-color images, Geology: Tectonic Fury is sure to captivate curious minds.
