This "Science News for Kids" book focuses on climate, weather, and natural disasters, as well as exploring beneath the Earth's crust and under the ocean. Similar to other books in the series, this book is organized into four chapters that include a collection of articles written by two or three different authors. The first two chapters concentrate on natural disasters, opening with an article about how hurricanes are developed and classified. The articles are not only informative and scientific, but the topics are timely and interesting. For example, many readers will be interested to learn about how weekend weather may actually be different from weekday weather, or about the Joides Resolution, a floating university that drills into the ocean floor to collect information. Hurricane Katrina and the terrible tsunami in the Indian Ocean are referred to and discussed in several articles. Other natural disasters touched upon include droughts, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Evacuation plans and detection systems for these natural disasters are also discussed. Recommended reading, questions for discussion, and ideas for activities follow many articles. Readers looking to learn more about natural disasters or exploring under the Earth's crust will find this book interesting and fun to read. This book can also be utilized as a reference for students and teachers in the classroom.
