Research resources available on the Internet for monitoring natural phenomena
including earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, global climate, and weather.

Based on  research, do the following:

  • Identify a minimum of three different natural phenomena that are typically
    responsible for natural disasters. Analyze the potential impact of these
    disasters.
  • Analyze how these phenomenon are monitored, or not, via the Internet.
    Critique available Web sites, which publicly display up-to-date monitored
    information related to each of the natural phenomena you have identified. Focus
    on the following aspects:

    • Geography
      • What parts of the world are potentially affected by these phenomena?
        Specifically identify the countries.
    • Resources
      • What kinds of resources are allocated toward monitoring these phenomena and
        why?
      • What types of Web resources monitor the phenomena and provide up-to-date
        information about them?
      • What kinds of technology are involved in monitoring the phenomena?
    • Politics
      • What political ramifications would this disaster-preparedness technology
        cause between more-developed countries and less-developed countries?
      • What kinds of issues could this technology cause between less-developed
        countries?
    • Economics
      • How would this technology directly impact the economies of those countries
        that have the technology versus those countries that do not?
      • Do you predict any indirect impacts? What current evidence supports your
        position?
    • Disaster Preparedness
      • What types of systems are in place in terms of disaster preparedness related
        to these monitored phenomena?
  • Summarize your findings. Evaluate how this technology will impact the future
    of humanity, both positively and negatively. Be sure to consider the political
    and economic issues discussed in your future predictions.

 

Support your statements with examples. Use a minimum of six
reliable references, two of which should be peer-reviewed articles.
