A little technical at times By Matt on Feb 12, I used this book for an emergency management course. It is very technical, but it also covers a wide variety of natural hazards. I have a background in geology so I understood some of the processes described in the book. However, at times I felt that I needed a chemistry major. I was forced to buy this for class.
By Christopher on Jun 04, I was forced to buy this for class. Yes it is a book, and yes it tells you about Natural Hazards and Disasters but you can get the previous version online for a fraction of the cost and the only real difference i saw was page numbers and the homework questions.
This book was part of a college class and I really enjoyed reading it. By Houstonian1 on Mar 27, This book was part of a college class and I really enjoyed reading it. I will always look at mother nature differently. Good book. Return was super simple as well.
This book got me an "A" in class By Jamario P. Provided the necessary information need to be successful in the course taken. A friend of mine found it for 70 bucks cheaper somehow. Great Book! By Grant Bodmer on Sep 04, Great book. Easy read and easy to use. Came in good condition and came on time. Book review By L. Alworth on Aug 09, I purchased this book as a text for a adult learning class.
We seniors are using it as a resource for a trip we are taking in the fall to see volcanoes and earthquake faults! Although used, the book was in excellent condition. It is well written, not too difficult for this aging mind, but scientifically correct. Great photos and descriptions of past geological events. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the geological world we inhabit. This text is fairly simplistic, but covers the material By B Wilson on Jan 25, This text is fairly simplistic, but covers the material very well and in a clear manner.
I just wish that the class I bought it for had been more challenging! By Amazon Customer on Sep 07, Great book at a great price.

What direction is the Pacific Plate currently moving, based on the chain of Hawaiian Islands with only the easternmost island active? It is not moving; the chain of islands is not related to the active one. Before people understood plate tectonics, what evidence led some scientists to believe in continental drift? Rocks on the ocean floor are oldest in the center, becoming progressively younger toward each continent. Rocks on the continents can be traced through the ocean floor to the other side.
