The Science Behind Fiery Eruptions

Series: The Science Behind Natural Disasters

By Alvin Silverstein, Virginia Silverstein and Laura Silverstein Nunn

Although scientists increasingly can measure warning signs including tremors and other changes in the land, predicting when volcanoes will erupt is far from certain. This reluctant reader book explains why volcanoes remain dangerous natural disasters. VOLCANOES: THE SCIENCE BEHIND FIERY ERUPTIONS explores the formation of volcanoes, what causes them to erupt, the different types of volcanoes, and how scientists study them.
