Description
If our planet is a sleeping giant, it slumbers fitfully. Earth's fabric is shifting, creaking, and groaning. Our familiar land scape bears the scars of hidden forces at work deep beneath it. Furious Earth contains the latest science on these forces and the cataclysmic phenomena they produce -- earthquakes, volcanos, and tsunamis. Now, hard-won knowledge of these phenomena, gained from often dangerous efforts to understand and predict the unpredictable, is presented here by the following experts.

The scientific contributors include:
-- Stanley Williams, Ph.D., Professor of Vulcanology, Arizona State University, on volcanoes
-- Kate Hutton, Ph.D., Seismologist, California State Institute of Technology, on earthquakes
-- Costas Synolakis, Ph.D., Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Southern California, on tsunamis
