        Savage Earth | The Restless Planet: Earthquakes

        To experience the drama of plate tectonics -- the jostling of the giant plates that carry continents and oceans -- try this experiment: Sit in a comfortable chair, hold your hand out, and watch your fingernails grow. Savage Earth explores the science behind volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. From the legendary fury of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. to the devastating convulsion of Kobe, Japan, in 1994, this series tells the stories of these great natural disasters, the scientists who struggle to understand and predict them, and the people whose lives are forever changed by their merciless force.
