Product description

Catastrophies have shocked the world since history began. In the sheer power of monster waves, booming avalanches and raging bushfires, we are reminded that nature is still a hazard that we have no control over. Get up close to Earth’s most destructive and terrifying forces in this spine-tingling investigation! Using dramatic photographs and informative text, it lets you witness some of the world’s most cataclysmic disasters, from Hurricane Katrina to the Indian Ocean tsunami and the burial of Pompeii. Find out why floods are the greatest natural killer, what happens when tornadoes strike, and how volcanologists, earthquake scientists and storm chasers try to predict and prevent disasters. Look at how major natural disasters have unfolded, and explore their causes and aftermath. Packed with startling picture spreads, this gripping guide highlights the colossal power of nature.

Shortlisted for the Royal Society Prizes for Science Books Junior Prize.
