Written by a son-father team of prominent geologists, David and Donald Hyndman, "Natural Hazards and Disasters" emphasizes earth and atmospheric hazards that appear suddenly or rapidly, without significant warning. The text further discusses ways to prevent or mitigate the damage caused by natural hazards, providing students with the latest scientific research related to these topics. 'Case in Point' boxes generate discussion of individual cases to natural hazard processes and principles. The authors reinforce the need to become informed citizens and make educated living decisions. Students will find a balanced coverage of North American natural hazards, including earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and volcanic eruptions. These hazards are illustrated using numerous four-color photos and diagrams. This new updated edition features a new chapter that extensively covers the devastating 2005 hurricane season, providing an in-depth look at the causes and effects of Hurricane Katrina.
