              Tremendous forces are at work below the earth's surface. Sometimes they make the ground rumble and shake. Other times they make mountains explode, spewing forth rock, gases, and lava. These mountains are called volcanoes. They are among nature's most spectacular creations--and on...e of its most dangerous. David L. Harrison takes us on a fascinating voyage beneath the earth's surface to show how volcanoes are created and why they erupt. From its hot, solid iron core, up to the earth's crust, he introduces us to magma, lava, the colliding plates that cause earthquakes, and other natural phenomena. With vivid illustrations by Cheryl Nathan, here is a look at how volcanoes work.

              Glaciers: Nature's Icy Caps

              Glaciers: Nature's Icy Caps (Hardback)

              By Harrison, David L.; Illustrated by Nathan, Cheryl

              The seventh book in the Earthworks series offers a fascinating introduction to icy caps that have changed the face of our planet. Glaciers are powerful forces of nature--tremendous sheets of ice that can weigh millions of tons, crush boulders, and flatten forests. Some slide down... to meet the sea, break off, and form icebergs. Greenland, home to the largest glacier on earth, forms more than 40,000 icebergs each year, including the infamous one that sunk the Titanic. A lively look at one of the earth's remarkable phenomena.

              Earthquakes: Earth's Mightiest Moments

              Earthquakes: Earth's Mightiest Moments (Hardback, illustrated edition)

              Each year there are millions of earthquakes. Most are mild tremors that cause no damage. They usually go unnoticed. But a few earthquakes can be devastating, like the one that struck San Francisco in 1989 and destroyed hundreds of homes. Earthquakes happen under the ocean, too. I...f the quakes are strong enough, the shocks create enormous waves. Such powerful waves roll across the ocean at high speeds and may cause more damage when they hit land than the earthquake itself. What causes Earth to quiver and shake? This basic introduction explains why Earth's surface sometimes moves. It shows young readers how scientists believe the earth is made, from its hot iron core to the enormous floating plates that form the cool outer crust where we live. David L. Harrison and Cheryl Nathan examine the nature and causes of earthquakes in vivid, easy-to-understand language and bold illustrations.

              Oceans cover more than seventy percent of the earth. Below the surface of the water lie chains of volcanoes, deep trenches, and tall mountains, whose tops break the water in the form of islands. Above the surface, oceans affect the earth's weather. Wind and water can create sever...e storms, depending on the temperature. The Gulf Stream, a current that begins in the Gulf of Mexico, travels across the Atlantic Ocean and affects the climate in the British Isles. Oceans are an important part of the planet. This basic introduction explores oceans from their formation millions of years ago to the important role they play in nature each day.
