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, 2020).     

See also 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.
