From Hawaii's Kileaua volcano to the California countryside, join leading scientists as they attempt to unravel the mysteries of volcanoes and earthquakes.
Take a thrilling journey into the deep secrets of the earth. What forces send tons of molten rock and lava flying heavenward in a volcanic eruption, or turn the very ground we stand on into rubble in the sudden fury of an earthquake?
Hawaii's Mount Kileaua volcano may hold the clues to predicting future eruptions. RIVERS OF FIRE journeys to this unstable mountain with a scientific team gathering lava samples. Stand at the rim of the massive crater, and discover what clues scientists are finding in the lava taken from the tropical volcano.
In THE RESTLESS EARTH, venture to the small town of Parkfield, California, where earthquakes occur every 22 years. No one knows why, but interviews with the earth scientists trying to unlock the secrets of the Parkfiled quakes share their discoveries and show off the latest findings that they hope will prove the key to understanding quakes.
With incredible footage of some of the worst natural disasters in history and interviews with the scientists who risk their lives to study them, RIVERS OF FIRE is a riveting look at the destructive side of nature.
