These interactive learning modules and simulations allow students to explore the science, technology and people involved in building the New Bay Bridge, which is intended as a replacement for the historic San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge that was damaged in the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. In the interactive module "Quake Country," students investigate plate tectonics as the driving force behind the ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
In this activity, students work through two exercises that will demonstrate the construction of intensity maps, familiarize them with the basic Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale, and give them the opportunity to build their own maps online for the purpose of locating the epicenter of an earthquake. In the first exercise, the students will construct an isoseismal map using a background map of southern ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
This page offers two pieces of software that produce visualizations of seismicity, volcanic activity and wave propagation. The Seismic Waves program displays waves propagating out from the epicenter simultaneously on three-dimensional and cross-sectional views of the earth. These two views are synchronized with actual event waveforms so that as a particular phase arrives at a seismic station, one ... Full description.
