The Science Behind Seismic Shocks and Tsunamis

Series: The Science Behind Natural Disasters

By Alvin Silverstein, Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn

Unfortunately, scientists still have no way of predicting earth-shaking disasters. EARTHQUAKES: THE SCIENCE BEHIND SEISMIC SHOCKS AND TSUNAMIS examines what causes an earthquake, how scientists measure them, and provides tips to stay safe during this natural disaster. The authors also explore the dangerous aftermaths of earthquakes including landslides, fires, and giant waves of water called tsunamis.
