9781467715935: Natural Disasters Through Infographics (Super Science Infographics)

"The facts about natural disasters are so big and devastating they could make your head explode! You hear about huge costs (like the $360,000,000,000 in damage caused by the 2011 tsunami in Japan), huge speeds (the fastest-moving tsunami waves have been recorded at 500 miles per hour), and even huger mysteries (where, exactly, the danger zones are for natural disasters).
How can all these big numbers and concepts make more sense? Infographics! The charts, maps, and illustrations in this book tell a visual story to help you better understand key concepts about natural disasters. Crack open this book to explore mind-boggling questions such as:

· How can scientists accurately predict natural disasters?

· What were some of Earth’s biggest, freakiest, and deadliest disasters?

· How can you protect yourself in the event of a volcano, an earthquake, or a tsunami?
The answers are sure to shake you up!"

and zombies. Nadia lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two young
daughters.

"

From Booklist:

This introduction to seismic events, from earthquakes to tsunamis, features brightly colored illustrations that give the title high visual energy. Along with maps showing tectonic plates and the locations of various hot spots and historical catastrophes, the images include schematic views of four kinds of volcanoes, quake-resistant features in San Francisco’s Transamerica Pyramid, and demonstrations of how the shape of a tsunami changes as it rolls over a continental shelf. Short descriptions of record-breaking disasters, the earth scientists who study their causes, survival techniques during disasters, and other high-interest topics are interspersed throughout the spreads. Eye-catching but limited in scope and level of detail, this entry in the Super Science Infographics would be best read as a supplement to more comprehensive titles, such as Claire Watts’ Natural Disasters (2012) and Lydia Bjornlund’s Natural Disaster Research (2012). Grades 3-5. --John Peters
