Natural disasters have existed throughout the world's history. However, the increase of those catastrophes created by the increased influence of man represent a real danger. Within the last years humanity has been startled by a concentration of catastrophes (Mount St. Helens, hurricane Andrew, the earthquake in Kobe, floods along the Mississippi) where many people died and thousands became homeless. Using striking examples and specific use of multi-media elements the user learns everything about the causes of earthquakes, volcanism, storms, floods and erosion. The alarming scale of such incidents is shown in numerous pictures and movies. In addition interactive chapters allow the simulation of the possible dimensions of rising sea-level or shifting climate zones.
