Abstract:

The majesty of the natural world is often tempered by reminders of Earth's incredible power to destroy. The natural disasters that sometimes devastate entire countries are sobering reminders of impermanence and reveal that our planet, like everything else, is in constant flux. This series explores some of the natural occurrences integral to Earth's functioning but, in extreme cases, destructive to human life. Along with the science behind each phenomenon, readers learn about major examples and cases that bring home the effects of nature's awesome power.
