The Science of Earthquakes

The Science of Earthquakes
In January 1994, an earthquake shook a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, so hard that highway overpasses immediately collapsed. Gas pipes burst and buildings caught on fire. Sixteen people died in a fallen apartment building. As one of the most common natural disasters in the world, earthquakes can be a terrifying force of nature. Readers will be introduced to the amazing science behind an earthquake occurrence in addition to modern examples of earthquakes from all over the world. Including seismology and disaster relief, accessible content will engage readers while full-color photographs augment detailed timelines of featured earthquakes. Powered by information, readers will be ready to do more than just duck and cover when an earthquake hits.
