This book will illuminate how various characteristics of datable carbonate blocks torn up from coral reefs and deposited on reef platforms yield importance evidence about the storms and tsunamis that emplaced them over decadal and centennial timescales.  No comprehensive review has so far been published.  A need now exists for a 'definitive reference' on coral boulder research, which details the earliest observations, changing terminology, sedimentology, and relevance for coastal hazard research in the tropics.  A wide range of examples will be incorporated from across Asia, Australia, the Pacific and the Americas, as well as a full up-to-date review of the existing literature.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.

Of course, actually observing a lethal tropical storm is easier said than done. But when a series of devastating hurricanes hit Florida in 2005, an army of film crews stood in their way. In this film, the amazing footage they captured is compiled and analyzed by experts, who find startling information uncovered from inside the storms.9 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
