Landslides by Rochelle Baltzer

Clear, easy-to-read text pairs with oversized, gripping photos to introduce readers to the basics of landslides. Readers will learn why they happen, where they occur, and how they change land and affect communities. Types of landslides are also explained. A Case Study chapter discusses the 2010 Gansu landslide, while a map aids comprehension. Damage, safety methods, rescue missions, measurement, and prediction are also covered. "Breaking News" fact boxes appear throughout, and the book concludes with a "News Flash!" facts page. This compelling title will leave readers feeling more informed about the landslides they hear about in the news. Features include a table of contents, a glossary with phonetic spellings, and an index.
