Roadside Geology of Wisconsin (Roadside Geology Series) (Roadside Geology Series), Evolution of the Earth
This book reveals the logical framework of geology shows relations of the science to the totality of human knowledge and gives some idea of what it is to be a participant in the discipline In keeping with the preference for a How do we know rather than What do we know approach the authors stress which assumptions are made by earth historians what kinds of evidence and tools for gathering that evidence and which processes of reasoning and limitations of hypotheses are involved in reconstructing and interpreting the past Each chapter begins with a list of highlights entitled Major Concepts Many chapters have a summary timeline that puts the entire sequence of events into a quick visual reference frame The use of dioramas and reconstructions of extinct animals and plants has been greatly expanded so that students can get a more vivid concept of typical life in any part of the geological past In many places the authors have supplied a full page of colour photos of classic fossils from each period to improve the visual recognition of the organisms that give life its distinctive history The areas of hottest controversy such as mass extinctions dinosaur endothermy, Robert H Dott Jr and John W Attig wrote Roadside Geology of Wisconsin to help residents and visitors alike envision mastodons roaming in front of glaciers years ago feel storm waves pounding sea cliffs million years ago and hear volcanoes exploding million years ago With lively prose detailed maps black and white photographs and shaded relief images the authors succeed in their goal unraveling the million years of geologic history recorded in Wisconsin s rocks Introductory sections describe the geology of each region and thirty five road guides locate and interpret the rocks sediments and landforms visible from the state s highways including the Great River Road in the Mississippi Valley Roadside Geology of Wisconsin delves further into the geologic history of specific sites such as Apostle Islands National Lakeshore the Wisconsin Dells the geologically renowned Baraboo Hills and more than twenty five state parks Features of and access points to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail are noted
