Can We Protect People From Natural Disasters?

What turns a flood event into a flood disaster? What can be done to protect crops from pests and fire? How do scientists detect likely tornado formation inside a thunderstorm? This book discusses natural disasters such as tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, floods and droughts and looks into how scientists use their technology to try and protect people from them, such as seismology to detect earthquakes and sensors on buoys at sea to detect water pressure changes in the lookout for tsunamis, and whether these measures that are taken are effective or proactive enough.

Reviews

School Library Connection - Rich Parker, Media Specialist, Fox Chapel Elementary School, Germantown, MD

"...well-captioned photographs and diagrams support the text, as do sidebars. Each volume concludes with interesting “Places to Visit” for those who wish to study further." - School Library Connection

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Frequent sidebars throughout offering closer examinations of particular issues, eyewitness or expert commentary, profiles of scientists, and “Hero or Villain?” counterpoints join well-chosen photos and other illustrations. Readers studying climate change, pollution, natural catastrophes and related subjects will find these studies low on definitive answers, but rich in points to ponder." - School Library Journal
