Book Summary

The third edition of “Natural Hazards : Earth Processes as Hazards, Disasters, and Catastrophes” is an introductory-level survey designed for university and college courses focused on earth processes that directly and frequently exert sudden and violent impacts on human society.”The text integrates principles of geology, hydrology, meteorology, climatology, oceanography, soil science,
ecology, and solar system astronomy.

The book “Natural Hazards : Earth’s Processes as Hazards, Disasters, and Catastrophes” aims to facilitate instructors in teaching students with limited scientific backgrounds to grasp physical earth processes as natural hazards and their societal impact.

Climate change, on a global scale, is melting glaciers, ice caps, and permafrost, warming the atmosphere and oceans, and causing sea levels to rise more rapidly than originally forecast. Human activities, primarily the burning of fossil fuels, release vast quantities of carbon dioxide and other gases into the atmosphere each day, contributing to these changes.

The interaction between humans and earth processes has never been clearer. Consequently, the imperative for comprehending these processes as hazards to our economy and society has grown significantly. This edition of “Natural Hazards” is dedicated to elucidating the earth processes that underlie hazardous events in a clear and accessible manner. It also aims to exemplify the intricate interplay between these processes and our civilization, while offering insights into how we can more effectively adapt to their effects.
