The Earth in Turmoil: Earthquakes, Volcanoes, and Their Impact on Humankind Ç Ating their causes Earth in Turmoil MOBI #245 and attempting to forecast future activity Focusing on volcanic and seismic Earth in Turmoil Earthuakes Volcanoes ePU. One of the things that makes this book stand out is that its geology is up to date and detailed I was a geology major back in the late 70s and while I decided not to go on in the field I've kept up reasonably well I learned a great deal of new info from this book including the only coherent explanation I've ever read of the hot spots responsible for volcanoes like those in HawaiiThe basic format of the book is of a west to east journey through the US although Southern California where co author Sieh lives and works gets by far the most detailed coverage We get some vivid anecdotal accounts of earthuakes and eruptions but the overall focus is what we think we know and why we think we know it As another reviewer said you must be interested enough in the subject to follow some reasonably complex logical argumentsThe color photos in the book are a valuable addition among other things they made me realize that the oddly ramp like block just south of Sunset Boulevard in LA is actually the scarp of the fault that has raised the Hollywood HillsThe writing style is clear and approachable All in all a very enjoyable read for folks with a serious interest in Earth Science review Ë eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ô Join or create book clubs

This is a book about geological hazards in the United States The general focus is on the West Coast if only because that is the most tectoncally active area Some color plates and a few black and white photos are included but the primary emphasis is on a well written text The book is highly readable and keeps one's attention throughoutThe authors begin their examination with a review of the Northwest discussing both volcanic hazards and the lesser known recently discovered but far dangerous hazard of a truly giant earthuake in that region Every citizen of that part of the United States should carefully peruse this sectionAttention then turns to California and the San Andreas Fault Author Sieh is a renowned expert on this transform fault and thoroughly discusses the extensive research he and others have done on this peril Again as with the Northwest this section is very highly recommendedThe earthuake hazards of the Great Basin and the volcanic hazards of Yellowstone are examined in detail as are mid continent earthuake problems in the central Mississippi valley The book also looks at potential East Coast earthuake and tsunami hazardsThe authors use particular care in explaining geologic termnology in an understandable manner and this is rare and impressive Many books of this genre are deficient in that they either oversimplify the material at hand leading to inaccuracies and potentially dangerous distortions or by making geology appear so difficult that the reader with a non scientific background becomes frustrated The authors have carefully avoided either pitfall and the book has profited though such careIf you live in the United States you should own and read this book It may save your investments or your life
