Chances are that students remember at least one major geologic disaster, if not more, that has happened in their lifetime; earthquakes in Haiti, tsunami in South Asia, hurricanes in the South, widespread flooding in the Midwest, or wildfires in California. Earth's Hazards will help students understand the geologic background of these life-changing events and the dynamic and sometimes interrelated nature, of the Earth's geologic processes. This book goes beyond the geologic aspect of the disasters and discusses the human impact, climate change, and biological hazards that often result from major life-changing events. This full-color text includes photos, graphs, and maps to help illustrate the broad range of natural disasters that are discussed. Additional features: Questions for Thought, Web sites for further resources, and historical perspectives. Supporting Web Site Students will have access to the supporting web site for updated information as new events occur. This site provides lecture notes, links to various geoscience resources for current hazard information from around the world. Instructor's Ancillary Materials Professors who adopt this text will have access to a separate site with Instructor's Guide, image database, and Test Bank.
