With fascinating experiments, models, and demonstrations, this scientific survey provides a vivid exploration of natural phenomena. Ideal for budding earth scientists, this in-depth resource demonstrates how to build a seismograph to record a simulated earthquake, compare pressure waves and shear waves--the two types of ground shocks--with a Slinky, and replicate a tsunami's destructive effect on a "coastline" built in a bathtub. The chapters answer questions such as "Can animals "predict" earthquakes?" "How have various cultures explained the movement of the earth throughout history? "and "Why do some volcanoes ooze rivers of lava while others blow their tops?" Additional topics include how to earthquake-proof homes, protect oneself during a tremor, and construct simple models to test seismographs.
