The Hazardous Earth Set by Facts on File


The Hazardous Earth Set by Facts on File

The Hazardous Earth is intended to provide middle and high school students with readable and comprehensive accounts of natural geologic hazards, along with the geologic processes behind them and what can be done to minimize their effects. Following Earth science standards, the titles in this accessible set present clear descriptions of plate tectonics and associated hazards, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and soil and mineral hazards, as well as hazards from the interaction of the ocean, atmosphere, and land, such as tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, and droughts. Providing readers with in-depth, firsthand knowledge of naturally hazardous processes, each volume in this exciting set offers vivid accounts of historic disasters and events that have shaped human history. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs and line illustrations, these straightforward books also feature sidebars, tables, and further resources to help students with their research.
