From space, the earth looks like a smooth blue ball. Move closer, and you’ll see towering mountain peaks and rugged canyons. There are deep, dark seas, vast deserts, and huge flowing sheets of ice.
The earth is constantly changing. Over millions of years, mountains rise, rivers change course, and continents collide. Other things happen much more quickly. In the blink of an eye, hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes change the earth in dramatic ways. This book uses infographics—illustrations, charts, graphs, and diagrams—to help us understand some of the forces that shape our planet.
