Volcanoes & Earthquakes features the earth sciences at their most spectacular. It reveals the massive internal forces that create and change the Earth's surface, with dramatic and sometimes beautiful consequences. The authors explain what fuels the power of volcanoes and earthquakes and explore how the gradual shifting of tectonic plates has transformed the Earth over its four and a half thousand million year existence. Written in a jargon-free style and fully illustrated with photographs, diagrams and maps, this is a cutting-edge introduction to earthquakes, volcanoes and plate tectonics, incorporating all the latest research developments.Chiara Maria Petrone is a Research Leader in Petrology and Volcanology in the Earth Sciences Department of the Natural History Museum, London. Roberto Scandone is a Research Associate at the Vesuvius Observatory, National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, Naples. Alex Whittaker is a Senior Lecturer in Tectonics in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College, London.
