"Hurricanes are increasing in frequency and intensity, bringing massive destruction in their wake. This resource provides readers with insight into the nature of hurricanes and the solutions engineers are using to prepare for hurricanes and protect people and property when they occur. It explains the technological tools such as NASA satellites, computer modeling, and aircraft and field missions that scientists and engineers are using to predict when and where hurricanes will occur. It also describes how engineers are creating improved building codes and innovative structures and redesigning cities to withstand hurricanes' violence and save lives when disaster strikes."-- Provided by publisher.
