Description

This manual offers a meticulously crafted and concise tool to support physical geography instructors and students in their labs.

Covering all of the topics presented in most undergraduate courses, the manual serves as an ideal companion to Physical Geography: The Global Environment by H. J. de Blij et al., or as a standalone lab manual.

FEATURES

- Written by Dalton W. Miller and Andrew E. Mercer--two experienced educators who together have instructed labs for more than one thousand students

- Offers highly illustrative full-color graphics

- Expands on concepts presented in the main book

- Features twenty labs that cover foundational topics

- Designed for flexibility: The manual does not call for any particular or specialized equipment and therefore can be used outside the traditional lab environment

- Available bundled with Physical Geography: The Global Environment at a significant discount (Please contact your Oxford University Press representative for details.)
