In this activity students explore earthquake hazards and damage to buildings by constructing model buildings and subjecting the buildings to ground vibration (shaking similar to earthquake vibrations) on a small shake table. After the initial testing, instructors can illustrate specific design issue problems with model buildings that were successful by modifying them with a specific weakness. Poor ... Full description.

The Regional Earthquake Likelihood Models (RELM) working group for the development of earthquake modeling is supported by the Southern California Earthquake Center and the United States Geological Survey. It was tasked with developing a variety of alternative forecast models for California, testing these models against geophysical data, and evaluating their seismic hazard implications. The results ...

This mapping tool allows users to generate Earthquake Probability Maps (EPMs) for a region within 50 kilometers of a location specified by latitude and longitude or by ZIP code. The maps are color-coded; higher earthquake probabilities are indicated by orange and red colors, while lower probabilities are indicated by green or blue. Fault traces are marked in white; rivers are in blue. The maps are ... Full description.

Earthquake prediction has never been an exact science or an easy job. In 1923, the debate between two Japanese seismologists, Akitune Imamura, and his superior at the University of Tokyo, Professor Omori, over whether a great earthquake was imminent, ended in tragedy as Omori prevailed and no preparations were made for the disaster. In this video segment, a contemporary seismologist tells the story ... Full description.

In this lesson students will use earthquake and volcano data to explore the relationship between earthquakes, plate tectonics, and volcanoes. This in an online project in which students use the Internet to collect and analyze real-time data. It includes four activities in which they will plot the data, look for patterns, attempt to project where their homes might be located in a million years, and ... Full description.
