Embracing earth: new views of our changing planet

Book Cover
Average Rating
Chronicle Books,
Pub. Date:
Detailed, informative captions accompany stunning computer-enhanced satellite images (some double-page, i.e. 20x28") that capture both Earth's natural rhythms (e.g. the changing contours of the land, the perpetual movement of the oceans' waters, the shifting global winds, the seasonal fluctuations of the polar ice caps) and humanity's disruption of these rhythms (e.g. global deforestation, the hole in the ozone layer, increasing desertification, the disastrous environmental consequences of the Gulf War).
