This introduction to seismic events, from earthquakes to tsunamis, features brightly coloured illustrations that give the title high visual energy. Along with maps showing tectonic plates and the locations of various hot spots and historical catastrophes, the images include schematic views of four kinds of volcanoes, quake-resistant features in San Francisco’s Transamerica Pyramid, and demonstrations of how the shape of a tsunami changes as it rolls over a continental shelf. Short descriptions of record-breaking disasters, the earth scientists who study their causes, survival techniques during disasters, and other high-interest topics are interspersed throughout the spreads. Eye-catching but limited in scope and level of detail, this entry in the Super Science Infographics would be best read as a supplement to more comprehensive titles, such as Claire Watts’ Natural Disasters (2012) and Lydia Bjornlund’s Natural Disaster Research (2012). Grades 3-5. —John Peters —This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
