Natural Hazards uses real-life examples of hazards and disasters to explore how and why they happen–and what we can do to limit their effects. The text’s up-to-date coverage of recent disasters brings a fresh perspective to the material.

The Fourth Edition provides a new active learning approach, a fully updated visual program and revised pedagogy tools that highlight hallmark concepts of the text.  Students have access to an updated Hazard City, an online media resource which gives instructors meaningful, easy-to-assign, and easy-to-grade assignments in which students investigate virtual disasters in the fictional town of Hazard City.

This program will provide an interactive and engaging learning experience for your students. Here’s how:

  • Engage your students with dynamic content: Newly revised stories and case studies give students a behind the scenes glimpse into the lives of survivors, professionals and hazardous events.

  • Use strong pedagogy tools that highlight the text’s core features: The new chapter structure and design organizes the material into three major sections to help students learn, digest, and review learning objectives.
