Earthquakes and Volcanoes

Our home, the Earth is in constant change sometimes unobtrusively, other times with violence. Both are happening the now. Here in North Fife there are the remains of ancient volcanoes, the Lomonds for instance and across the water Dundee Law. Geologically Fife is rich.

"Encyclopedia of Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Third Edition" brings the excitement of an ever-changing field of science to the fore-front. With the increase in natural disasters in recent years, the burgeoning world population is clearly expanding faster than our disaster reduction technology. This new edition provides a single source on historical earthquakes and volcanic eruptions from throughout the world. Updated with the most current information, this illustrated resource includes not only new geologic events, but also as many examples of historical earthquakes as possible for contrast or comparison. Coverage in the Middle East has been significantly expanded to include recent natural disasters, as well as events such as landslides and avalanches. Also, many tables were added to supplement the content and put the recent disasters into historical context. To Buy Now:> Encyclopedia of Earthquakes and Volcanoes (Science Encyclopedia)
