An excellent companion piece to Richard Fortey s The Earth which gave an overview of the excitement of geology on a global scale This book takes an ordinary slate pebble from a beach in Wales and analyses the physics chemistry and biology that allow us to prove how could appear right there right now in this particular form just so that one could casually pick it up and spin it across the waves with a nonchalant flick of the wrist Takes a complicated and fascinating subject and explains in enough detail to allow this reader to feel cleverer at the end than I did at the start The deposition of some sediment in the Silurian seas at a latitude close to that of present day Auckland undergoes an extraordinary number of changes that are pieced together forensically and somehow our stone ends up several kilometres below the sea bed then under a bloody great mountain before being washed out of a cliff near Aberystwyth Patient and ingenious detective work with the help of some extraordinary euipment show how where and when the multiple constituents of a piece of commonplace rock forms It is all complicated than we can imagine And there is still so much to learn

Summary ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Jan Zalasiewicz Jan Zalasiewicz ☆ 9 Read & Download Free read The Planet in a Pebble This is the story of a single pebble It is just a normal pebble as you might pick up on holiday on a beach in Wales say Its history though carries us into abyssal depths of time and across the farthest reaches of spaceThis is a narrative of the Earth's long and dramatic history as gleaned from a single pebble It begins as the pebble particles form amid unimaginable violence in distal realms of the Uni. There are some authors who can make me feel enthusiastic about reading about geology Richard Fortey being the obvious name that jumps to mind Jan Zalasiewicz is not uite on that level though I found the book interesting enough sometimes it drags somewhat but I think that somewhat comes with the subject There are parts of a rock s life cycle that aren t exactly scintillating drama if any part of the rock cycle could be called scintillating given the pace it happens atProbably not the first book I d recommend for geology but useful enough for understanding the rock cycle and the history of the Earth through rocksReviewed for The Bibliophibian
