📙 Natural Hazards and Disasters, 3rd Edition by Donald Hyndman, David Hyndman — free download


Written by a father-son team of prominent geologists, Donald and David Hyndman, NATURAL HAZARDS AND DISASTERS, Third Edition, emphasizes Earth, the atmosphere, and the hazardous natural processes and events that dramatically alter them. In teaching introductory environmental and physical geology courses, the authors found that topics involving natural hazards are among the most interesting for students like you. They also realized that employing natural hazards as a thematic focus and context motivates their students to learn basic scientific concepts. You begin each chapter by reading about the underlying geological processes as well as the key terms that describe them. Next, you explore the impact these processes have on humans (as well as the impact that humans have on the processes). Finally, the authors analyze strategies for mitigating these hazards' physical and financial harm, and present prospects for the future. With over 900 images and illustrations, this third edition will certainly catch and retain your attention.
