Natural Hazards Reading List

Natural Hazards, 2019/20, Semester 1
Prof Jeff Peakall
Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue

Pipkin Bernard W & Trent, Geology and the environment Brooks/Cole, 7th edition

Abbott ‘Natural Disasters’ (now in a 11th edition), but the library has copies of the 9th edition, is also a superb book that covers most of the material on this course (8 copies of older versions in the library). See Hyndman and Hyndman, Natural Hazards and Disasters (though the library does not have copies), 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.
