Preparing for Disaster


Earthquakes, wildfires, and floods, oh my! The headlines
are full of disasters and epidemics more than ever. Scientists use climate
models to project a growing number, frequency, and intensity of natural
disasters. Meanwhile, engineers, meteorologists, and other scientists design
mathematical models to help them try to stay one step ahead by predicting when
and where natural disasters might occur. Life-saving knowledge like this can
warn people to evacuate the region before disaster strikes. This pivotal set
enables readers to explore the various solutions engineers use or are creating
today to prepare for disasters and epidemics and prevent catastrophe from
happening.

• Blends actual STEM principles for mitigating the effects of
natural hazards with the science relating to the causes, predictions, and
preparedness for these natural disasters

• Complements the mandates of the
Next Generation Science Standards, such as designing and optimizing engineering
solutions and understanding human impact on Earth and the natural world,
including the cutting-edge science behind disaster assessment and its
prevention

• Includes discussion of today's thinking about engineering and
how natural disasters continue to impact lives, property, ecosystems, and world
economies
