Earthshock: Hurricanes, Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, and Other Forces of Nature

Earthshock: Hurricanes, Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes, and Other Forces of Nature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What causes an earthquake? When will another big shock shake Tokyo or Los Angeles? Can people create deserts? How are the ozone layer and greenhouse effect interlinked? Is global warming a force of Nature ù or of man?

This revised edition of Andrew RobinsonÆs compelling and informative book, illustrated with marvellous photographs and specially commissioned artwork, draws on the dramatic evidence of recent years to evaluate the state of the planet in the new century ù and manÆs effect on it. Each force of Nature is separately described, dissected and fitted into the jigsaw puzzle of global environmental change.

Book News Annotation:

A nontechnical survey of some natural phenomena that impact humans in spectacular ways. The 1993 edition was the Association of Earth Science Editors' Outstanding Publication Award. Large color photographs are the outstanding feature.
