Earthquakes, volcanoes, and tsunamis don't happen every day, so how can budding scientists study how they work? Through experiments, models, and demonstrations. Authors Matthys Levy and Mario Salvadori even discuss problems of modern architecture and civil engineering: how science may be utilised to safeguard buildings and property in earthquake-prone areas. This in-depth resource will teach readers how to build a seismograph to record a simulated earthquake, compare pressure waves and shear waves — the two types of ground shocks — using a Slinky, and replicate a tsunami's destructive impact on a “ coastline” built in a bathtub.

Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis answers a wide array of concerns about these phenomena. And most important, readers will learn the way to earthquake-proof their homes, and the way to shield themselves should they experience a tremor. What will be the Richter scale, and what does it tell us about the strength of a quake? How have various cultures explained the movement of the earth throughout history? Can animals “ predict” earthquakes?
