Dynamic Kieffer Does Disasters

Posted on 08.23.2015

Recently retired Sue Kieffer ( Walgreen Professor Emeritus), spent some of her new free time writing and editing a new popular book on Disasters. Called "Dynamics of Disaster" and published by W. W. Norton, it came out just in time for the Annual GSA meeting. So far it has gotten many good reviews, some stellar, in Nature Communications and other scientific journals, as well as mainstream media. The internet media has even taken to it, having an interview with Sue in Salon, the internet news magazine and at Read Science!. The book is aimed at the general public, intending to bring a knowledge of the science behind the disasters past and future, fast or slow.
