GEOLOGY 12 (Natural Disasters) explains how unfortunate consequences result when human activity interferes with natural geologic processes associated with the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere. Examples of "natural disasters" are examined from each of these realms (hurricanes and tornadoes; floods and tsunamis; earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, along with ways that geologists study the processes that cause the "disasters". Ways to avoid or lessen the impact of such disasters are explored and evaluated.
