Overview

Extreme Earth, a special issue from Discover magazine, explores the most awesome phenomena on Earth, from the deepest reaches of the seas, to the further extremes of the poles, to the deadliest storms. In this special issue readers will discover:
  • The science of natural disasters: How recent catastrophes offer new insight into the fatal forces that unleash volcanoes, hurricanes, and firestorms upon us.
  • The story of how researchers proved that the fault off the Pacific Northwest, long thought to be sleeping, will probably lurch into action, shattering cities from Vancouver to San Francisco in one of the biggest earthquakes ever seen in modern times.
  • The risky and technologically adventurous plan to strip-mine the bottom of the ocean, and why it might turn up more gold and valuable metals than any mine on land.
  • Six ambitious efforts to tame the weather, from banishing fog to shooting lasers into drought-stricken desert skies.

PLUS Discover talks with famed tornado expert Joshua Wurman, inventor of mobile radar, to get the story behind the massive and murderous twister outbreak last spring. We take you to the bottom of the world in Antarctica, where the movement of ice rivers forecasts the fate of a warming planet. And we spend time with Caltech physicist David Stevenson who wants to send a probe to the center of the earth.
