Scientific and historical overviews of 23 categories of natural disasters followed by a chronological survey of the 100 worst or most notable disasters in history, including such recent events as the 2004 tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Notable Natural Disasters combines clearly explained scientific concepts with gripping narrative details about memorable disasters. It focuses on events caused, at least in part, by uncontrollable forces of nature. So, though human error played a role in many iceberg collisions, natural conditions were clearly a cause.
