The four weather phenomena we will examine in this portion of the course are Flood, Tsunami, Earthquake, and Volcanic-Eruption. We will spend the first four weeks learning about each of these types of extreme weather. From there, we'll spend the last half of the course testing our understanding of these weather phenomena and our survival skills as we go through a simulation where we're not sure what weather disasters will befall us.
