Dangerous Earth: Introduction to Geological Hazards by Barbara Murck

This book contains complete coverage of the geologic processes behind major natural hazards: earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods, and hurricanes. It also provides an absorbing exploration of the human-planet relationship, describing how Earth processes influence our lives on a daily basis and how human actions alter the natural functioning of Earth systems. It explains how to distinguish the effects of anthropogenic change from natural change and predict the impact of both. Focuses on the geological concepts behind disasters. Includes the risk assessment themes, hazard reduction focus, and such topics as snow avalanches, blizzards, major fires, coastal floodings, and meteorite impacts. Incorporates examples from around the world to provide a global focus.
