Forces of Nature

Presenting the awesome spectacle of natures' most severe acts, this film follows three scientists at work: a meteorologist tangling with Midwestern tornadoes, a volcanologist studying gas-spewing giants in the Caribbean, and an earthquake specialist wielding GPS and sonar technologies in Turkey. Their main questions: how are natural disasters triggered, and what can we do to prepare for them?
