Natural Hazards Reading List

Natural Hazards, 2018/19, Semester 1
Prof Jeff Peakall
Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue

Pipkin Bernard W & Trent, Geology and the environment Brooks/Cole, 2007 5th

There is a newer version of this available (7th edition) to purchase if you want to, but this is the most recent the University library has.

Abbott ‘Natural disasters’ is also a superb book that covers most of the material on this course, also see Keller ‘Introduction to environmental geology’ and other similar texts. You will also be directed to other texts where appropriate. A very good general geology text which acts as the background for the physical geology and plate tectonics discussed in this module is ‘Earth’ by Press & Siever.
