We cannot prevent earthquakes, but we can try to minimize their impact on humans. This important book examines what scientists know about earthquakes, whether we can predict them, and how we learn from each event. By studying the destruction they cause, scientists and engineers continue to come up with new and improved technologies to predict earthquakes and make cities, buildings, and people safer. Case studies and brief bios of key scientists and organizations highlight the information.
