For an introductory-level course in natural hazards


Natural Hazards uses real-life examples of hazards and disasters to explore how and why they happen--and what we can do to limit their effects. The text's up-to-date coverage of recent disasters brings a fresh perspective to the material.

 

The Fourth Edition provides a new active learning approach, a fully updated visual program and revised pedagogy tools that highlight hallmark concepts of the text.  Students have access to an updated Hazard City , an online media resource which gives instructors meaningful, easy-to-assign, and easy-to-grade assignments in which students investigate virtual disasters in the fictional town of Hazard City.


This program will provide an interactive and engaging learning experience for your students. Here's how:


  • Provide a balanced approach to the study of natural hazards: Focus on globalization of our economy, information access, and human effects on our planet in a broader, more balanced approach to the study of natural hazards.
  • Engage your students with "Hazard City": Students work through 11 different assignments by stepping into the role of a practicing geologist and analyzing potential disasters in the fictional town of Hazard City.
  • Enhance understanding and comprehension of natural hazards: Newly revised stories and case studies give students a behind the scenes glimpse into the lives of survivors, professionals and hazardous events.
  • Strong pedagogy tools reinforce the text's core features: The new chapter structure and design organizes the material into three major sections to help students learn, digest, and review learning objectives.
