Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0851129749, Hardcover)Volcanoes and earthquakes, rivers and glaciers, climate and the oceans - all of these massive natural forces are constantly at work in shaping the physical world around us. The energy of the Sun, the geology of the Earth itself and the plants and animals that live on the planet also play their role. This book describes the different physical environments throughout the world and explains the forces that have created them. The opening section examines the larger forces that have had a major impact on the Earth, while most of the book covers 22 regions of the world, highlighting such topics as tornadoes and waterspouts (USA), hurricanes (Central America), volcanoes of the Mediterranean (Italy and Greece), causes of deserts (North Africa), earthquakes and tsunami (Japan and Korea), the building of the Himalayas (Indian sub-continent), the making of coastlines (British Isles), and hot springs and geysers (Australasia).
