Encyclopedia of Earthquakes and Volcanoes, Third Edition brings the excitement of an ever-changing field of science to the forefront. The natural disasters of recent years have been among the worst in history—the burgeoning world population is clearly expanding faster than our disaster reduction technology. This edition features approximately 1,500 cross-referenced entries, and provides a single source on historical earthquakes and volcanic eruptions from all over the world.

Updated with the most current information, this illustrated resource includes not only new geologic events, but also as many examples of historical earthquakes as possible for contrast or comparison. Coverage in the Middle East has been significantly expanded to include recent natural disasters, as well as events such as landslides and avalanches. In addition, many tables were added to supplement the content and put the recent disasters into historical context.
