New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text! Here is an exciting and informative guide to the violent eruptions and tremors that shape our planet. Superb color photographs of lava flows and clouds of ash, plus specially built 3-D models, offer a unique "eyewitness" view of volcanoes and earthquakes, from the forces that drive them to the devastation they cause. See streams of red-hot lava, the earliest seismographs, rocks that float in water, the bodies of people killed by the great eruption of Vesuvius, and pools of bubbling mud. Learn how animals can detect earthquakes before people, what causes a fire fountain, how buildings are made to withstand earthquakes, where to hide during an earthquake, and why the earth shakes. Discover how the Mercalli scale works, how new islands are formed, why the sands of Hawaii are black, how volcanoes affect the ozone layer, what makes magma explode, what a pyrolcastic flow is, and much, much more!

It's so cool that volcanos exist underground too, and sometimes erupt on earth. And sometimes underwater even!

I returned it to library long time ago. Since it is still showed on my account so I renewed it many many times. Two weeks ago, on Nov 13th, Sunday I went to Tod Hill library to ask them search this book for me. The clerk told me that it took one month to get the result. Thanks for contact me. I will get back to you later.
