Dangerous Planet: The Science of Natural Disasters


Dangerous Planet goes further than any other source in explaining the science behind earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes, avalanches, mudslides, and other devastating natural disasters.

Approximately 180 black and white photos, illustrations, and maps help bring the text to life. A chronology of natural disasters is featured, as well as geographic and cumulative indexes and entry glossaries.
