Forces of Nature
Examining three common natural disasters and the scientists who study them, this documentary begins on the Caribbean island of Montserrat during a 1995 volcano explosion, where scientist Dr. Marie Edmonds explains her research on how to predict future eruptions. A deadly 1999 Turkish earthquake that killed more than 17,000 people is also discussed by a geophysicist, and finally a team of tornado chasers is followed as they endanger their lives in the name of research.
Get up close and personal to nature's most powerful and extreme forces. Cameras capture erupting volcanoes, devastating earthquakes, and powerful storms as a team of scientists travels the world in an attempt to figure out what causes these dangerous, yet undeniably thrilling natural occurrences.
