Description - The Science of Natural Disasters: When Nature and Humans Collide by Diane C. Taylor

Age range 12+While natural disasters might seem horrifically random, scientists can explain quite a lot about why they happen, how they develop, how we can try to prevent them, and how we can predict where and when they'll happen next.News reports from around the world offer detailed descriptions of wildfires, floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, and more. While these kinds of events might seem horrifically random, scientists can explain quite a lot about why they happen, how they develop, how we can try to prevent them, and how we can predict where and when they'll happen next. The Science of Natural Disasters: When Nature and Humans Collide examines the science behind earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and wildfires.

Using historical and current events as case studies, such as Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the floods in China in 1931, and the eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815, this book is geared towards kids interested in all things science, as they learn to use their critical-thinking skills against real-world data to brainstorm innovative solutions for the problems facing our planet today and in the future.
