The wind, rain and sea are powerful forces with the potential to cause devastation. Natural Disasters introduces children to nature at its most powerful, showing t only the damage that can be done to people and property but also ways in which we are able to forecast weather to minimise damage. Each book begins with an introduction describing the forces of nature, how they begin and what makes them grow stronger. The books then go on to show how and where disasters occur, other weather phemena associated with the same natural forces, and how we track and respond to them. Each book contains a table of contents, a glossary and an index.
