dtv-Atlas The Earth

Physical Geography
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1,10)

If you’re not satisfied with these few words as an account of the creation of the earth, but want to know more about cartography, the composition of the earth’s crust, earthquakes, the formation of mountain ranges and coastlines, glaciation, the earth’s atmosphere, precipitation and the westerly wind drift, climate change, marine life forms, floor sweep, plant distribution, boreal zones or semi-humid tropics, then you should consult this compendium.

Informative texts and illustrations show how deserts are formed, which areas are most at risk from earthquakes, and the coastlines most likely to be struck by tsunamis; equally, the less dramatic events that affect life on earth are also covered.
