Causes of a Natural Hazard
This title explores the structure of the earth and what is below the surface. We break down the earth into the three layers of core, mantle and crust to explore what is within. The surface of the earth is not one solid mass; it is broken up into pieces known as 'plates'. It is at the edges of these plates that we get the most activity and some interesting geographical features. The edges of the plates are known as plate boundaries, or margins, and we will examine the four main types of plate margins. This title also explores the natural hazards commonly found at each type of plate margin, such as earthquakes and volcanoes.
