- Bill McGuire: "Apocalypse", Oxford University Press, 2006.
A discussion of natural disasters which modern society must expect to face in the not too distant future. Each is capable of causing unprecedented disruption to our current cosy way of life. The work provides the reader with the background scientific information needed to understand the phenomena and their effects. This is supplemented by dramatic descriptions of the devastating impact of the catastrophes on society and on the planet itself. The four main sections cover the four likely causes of global catastrophe: volcanoes; earthquakes; tidal waves; and meteoric collisions. There is also a section on how to access relevant information on the Internet.
- Elizabeth Stommel and Henry Stommel: "The Year without a Summer", Scientific American, June 1979.
In 1816 in New England it snowed in June, and then killing frosts continued through August. The cause was the explosion of a volcano in Indonesia. The economic and social consequences are instructive.
