      This is a video for science about earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanos and the rock cycle. I hope this video is helpful. Featuring clear information about a comprehensive range of events such as tsunamis, avalanches, earthquakes and volcanoes (grouped under geological disasters), and tornadoes, blizzards, wildfires and tropical cyclones (meteorological disasters), this colourful and fascinating guide is a real eye-opener.

      There are many GeoFacts and experiments to try at home as children learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. At the end of the book, there are a useful review section, an author's note and a list of websites for young scientists who want to learn more. Volcanoes & Earthquakes is a new book aimed at younger readers in the Geo.

Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Tsunamis • Level T 17 18 The edges of the plates, where earthquakes and volcanoes often occur, usually lie near the edges of the oceans.

The shaking of an earthquake or the explosion of a volcano can cause large landslides. Entire hills can collapse, and sometimes they fall into the sea and make huge waves. Earth Shattering Events explores geological and meteorological disasters, with each page dedicated to a different natural event from volcanoes and tsunamis to cyclones and wildfires.

Each event is explained in a way that is easy to understand for junior children without compromising on presenting the underlying scientific facts. Earthquakes are caused by the release of built-up pressure at plate boundaries.

They can destroy buildings and infrastructure. Tsunamis can also occur, with. Thinking of powerful natural events like volcanic eruptions and tsunamis only as hazards undervalues their importance in our lives. This module suggests taking a case study approach—featuring Vesuvius of 75 AD, the San Francisco earthquake ofand the South Asian tsunami of —to learn about earthquakes and volcanic eruptions as players in the.
