THE EARTH'S FURIES: Raging mega fires that burn for months. Super eruptions with the potential of a Hiroshima bomb exploding every two or three minutes. Asteroid strikes so violent they wiped out entire species. Devastating tsunamis, tornadoes and earthquakes….
This six-part series, commissioned for RMC Découvertes, explores the science behind natural disasters in search of a deeper understanding. Through animated graphics, interviews with scientists and eyewitnesses, and stunning images, it brings these spectacularly destructive forces of nature to life.
AVALANCHES: Anywhere on the planet where there is snow, no mountain is spared. Depending on the type of snow, the weather and the slope, an avalanche can reach incredible speeds: more than 300km per hour. A small avalanche can exert the same amount of pressure as a cyclone. Researchers and security experts have set up techniques to detect dangerous areas and limit their impact.
