Natural Disasters (GEOL 1073)
Summer Session: June 18 - July 6 (9:00 am - Noon, Monday-Friday)
Instructor: David McMullin

Natural disasters affect everyone. For some, the effects are horrific; for others they are just an irritation. Disasters strike every nation both rich and poor. They range from earthquakes and accompanying tsunami, to volcanic eruptions, landslides, tornadoes, hurricanes, ice storms, blizzards, flooding, etc. The effects of any given event vary enormously not only because of the size of the event itself, butalso on the nature of the communities hit by it. In this course, we look at a wide variety of different kinds of events examining their direct and indirect causes, their effects, and what can be done both before and after disaster strikes. The good news we get from examining any event is that there is always something we can do to make the next one better.
